Grape Riddles

We’re continuing our series of fruit riddles today with a few where the answer is a grape.

The first couple of them rhyme, while the third one is a What Am I riddle.

To use that final idea, read the first line of it to your kids and ask them to take a guess at what they think the answer would be.

As the clue is that it’s something round which isn’t a ball, they might guess that it’s a wheel, a tomato, a clock, a dartboard or any number of other round objects.

If they don’t guess that a grape is the answer, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess. Keep going until they either guess that the correct answer is a grape or they run out of clues.

Pear Riddles

Our series of fruit riddles continues today with four where the answer is a pear.

The last couple of them mention homophones, while the first one also makes a reference to the word ‘pear’ sounding like something. This might therefore mean that you need to explain homophones to your children – check out this explanation to help you.

The first three of these rhyme and the fourth is a What Am I riddle. To use that fourth idea, read the first line to your kids and ask them to guess the answer.

As that clue is that it’s something that’s usually green but which isn’t grass, they might guess that it’s a frog, a leaf or an apple.

If they don’t guess that a pear is the correct answer, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess that the answer is a pear or they run out of clues.

As though there might be two of me

A partridge in this kind of tree

For when you have two of something

Raisin Riddles

Today we’re continuing our series of fruit riddles for kids with a collection that all have raisin as their answer.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles (with the word ‘raisin’ completing the rhyme of the third one), while the fourth asks your kids What Am I?

To use that final idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to take a guess at the answer. As the clue is that it’s something small, there’s any number of things that they might suggest.

If they don’t get extremely lucky and guess that the answer is a raisin, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess correctly or they run out of clues.

Lemon Riddles

Our series of fruit riddles for kids continues today with five where the answer is a lemon. These therefore also go well with our other food riddles.

The first four of them rhyme;  if you use the second idea, you might need to explain to your kids that the answer is an anagram of ‘melon.’

The fifth idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer.

As that clue is that it’s something that’s yellow but which isn’t a rubber duck, they might guess that it’s a sunflower, a pepper or a banana.

If they don’t guess that a lemon is the answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep going until they either get the correct answer or they run out of clues.

Coconut Riddles

We’re continuing our series of fruit riddles today with six that all have coconut as their answer. These ideas can therefore also be used with all of our riddles for kids with a food theme.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, the fifth is a one liner that also rhymes, while the sixth asks your children What Am I?

To use the What Am I riddle, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer will be. As the clue is that it contains water but isn’t a bottle, they might guess that it’s a swimming pool, a drinking glass or the ocean.

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