Blood Riddles

Here are seven riddles for kids where blood is the answer for each one. These are therefore ideal for using with our other human body and Halloween riddles.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘blood’ completing the rhyme of the fifth.

The sixth is a one line riddle that contains an internal rhyme, with the seventh asking your children What Am I?

To use that What Am I riddle, read the first line to your kids and have them try to guess what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something red but which isn’t a strawberry, they might guess that it’s a sports car, rose, stop sign or a fire truck.

If they don’t guess that the answer is blood, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess now that they have some additional information. Keep going until they either work out that blood is the answer or they run out of clues.

This is found in your body
From your feet up to your head
It is a type of liquid
And it is the color red

I’m something that can be pumped
But I am not a tire
I am a body fluid
That’s drunk by a vampire

This is something you can donate
Although it isn’t money
If you cut into a rare steak
Then this is what you will see

But it is not lips that can kiss

Mosquitos like to suck up this

But I am not mud

I’m in your body but I’m not your heart

Bones Riddles

Here are five riddles for kids where the answer is bones. These are therefore perfect for using with many of our other riddle themes such as anatomy, the human body and Halloween.

To use that fifth idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to take a guess at what they think the answer could be. As the clue is that it’s something white but which isn’t a sheet of paper, they might guess that it’s a snowman, milk or a slice of bread.

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

What are all of these?
