Hand Riddles

Here are seven riddles for kids where a hand is the answer, so they’re great for using with our other human body and anatomy riddles.

The first five of these riddles rhyme, while the sixth is a one line riddle that also contains a rhyme.

The seventh and final riddle asks your kids What Am I? To use that idea, read the first line to your children and have them take a guess at the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that can be used to hold things but which isn’t a bag, they might guess that it’s a phone case, a hammock or a box.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a hand, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again now that they have some additional information. Keep doing this until they either guess that a hand is the answer or they run out of clues.
