Diamond Riddles

We have five riddles for kids today where the answer to each one is diamond.

These therefore go well with our jewelry riddles, while some of them can also be used with our other themes such as sports, shapes and toys.

The first four of these rhyme, while the fifth is a What Am I riddle.

To use that last riddle, read the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer. As it’s something that can be cut, they might suggest grass, fingernails or paper.

If they don’t guess the correct answer, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep going until they either guess that diamond is the answer or they run out of clues.
