Desert Riddles

For the last few weeks we’ve been publishing a series of geography riddles which are written especially for kids.

That series continues today with four rhyming riddles that all have desert as their answer.

The first three of them can be used with younger children, while the fourth idea could be better to use with older children who might have heard of those deserts (although younger ones might be able to take a guess because they’ve heard of Sahara).
