We’re starting a new series of riddles for kids this week, with each set being about a different country – our first batch today is all about France.
There are five riddles here that have France as the answer. The first four of them rhyme (the word France completes the rhyme of the first riddle), while the fifth asks your kids What Am I?
To use that last idea, read the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer. Although the clue lets them know that the answer is a country, it’s unlikely that they’ll randomly guess the correct answer.
If they do indeed guess incorrectly, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either realize that the answer is France or they run out of clues.
