Tomato Riddles

Here are four riddles for kids where the answer is a tomato. These are therefore perfect for using with our other vegetable, fruit and food riddles.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘tomato’ completing the rhyme of the third one.

The fourth 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 could be.
