Our series of household item riddles for kids is continuing today with five where the answer is a fireplace.
The first four of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘fireplace’ completing the rhyme of the fourth.
The fifth and final one listed below is a What Am I riddle. To use that, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at the answer.
As the clue is that it’s something that can keep you warm but which isn’t a scarf, they might guess that it’s a sweater, jacket or hat. If they don’t guess that it’s a fireplace, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again now that they have some extra information. Keep doing this until they either realize that a fireplace is the answer or they run out of clues.

If you want log flames at home
Then you need a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
What Am I?

I’m found beneath a chimney but I’m not Santa
