Leaf Riddles

Here are eight riddles for kids where a leaf is the answer. These are therefore perfect for using with our other tree, fall and nature riddles.

The first six of these are rhyming riddles, while the seventh is a one line riddle that also contains a rhyme.

The eighth and final one of these ideas is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and ask them to try guessing what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that can be blown but which isn’t a bubble (think leaf blower), your children might guess that the answer is a whistle, a candle or a kiss.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a leaf, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either work out that a leaf is the answer or they run out of clues.

Leaf Riddles For Kids

This thing is usually green
But it’s not a plate of peas
On the flag of Canada
There’s a maple one of these

~

This thing’s not a human body
But it often has some veins
It falls from a deciduous
On evergreens it remains

~

I’m sometimes big
And sometimes small
In the autumn
You see me fall

~

I am something that’s thin and flat
On a branch I can be found
When I’m from a deciduous
In the fall I’m on the ground

~

This is something that’s often green
Because of photosynthesis
You might turn over a new one
And it is part of a lettuce

~

Trees have many in the summer
But in winter they might have none
And there’s a certain phrase that says
You can turn over a new one

~

Out in nature I can be seen, I don’t fall from an evergreen

~

What Am I?

I can be blown but I’m not a bubble
I drop but I’m not a tear
I come in different shapes but I’m not a snowflake
I come in different colors but I’m not a cellphone
I come from a tree but I’m not an apple

Coat Riddles

Here are five riddles for kids where the answer is a coat. These are therefore ideal for using with all of our other riddles about clothes, fall and winter.

The first four of these riddles rhyme, with the word ‘coat’ completing the rhyme of the fourth, while the fifth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that fifth idea, read the first line to your children and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that’s used when it’s cold but which isn’t a fire, they might guess that it’s a scarf, a blanket or a heater.

If they don’t guess that a coat is the answer, read them the clue that’s on the second line and ask them to try guessing again now that they have some additional information. Keep doing this until they either realize that the answer is a coat or they run out of clues.

Coat Riddles For Kids

I’m sometimes made of fur
And sometimes made of leather
I am what you might wear
When outside there’s cold weather

This is something that you wear
But it isn’t a backpack
It has sleeves and keeps you warm
And might get hung on a rack

You might start wearing in the fall
This also has the same name as
A layer of paint on a wall

~

Although this thing might get wet
It’s not something that will float
It protects you from the rain
It has sleeves, it’s a _ _ _ _

~

What Am I?

I’m used when it’s cold but I’m not a fire
I sometimes have buttons but I’m not a portable heater
I sometimes have a hood but I’m not a car
I have sleeves but I’m not a shirt
I might get hung on a rack but I’m not a hat

Squirrel Riddles

We’re continuing with our theme of animal riddles today with four where the answer is ‘squirrel.’

These are therefore also perfect for using with some of our other themes, such as books, fall and nature.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles for kids; the word ‘squirrel’ completes the rhyme of the second one.

The collection is rounded off with one that asks What Am I? To use that final idea, read the first clue to your kids and ask them to guess the answer. As it says that it’s something that climbs trees, they might guess that you’re describing a monkey.

If they don’t guess that it’s a squirrel, read them the second clue and have them guess again. Keep doing this until your children either guess that you’ve been describing a squirrel or they run out of clues.
