Holly Riddles For Kids
Prick yourself at Christmas
This leaf might be to blame
It has the same title
As a certain girl’s name
If you gather a lot of this
Your Christmas wreath should look grand
Be careful how you hold it though
As the prickles may hurt your hand
If you want to pick up this leaf
Holding tightly might be folly
Because it’s easy to get pricked
When you touch a piece of _ _ _ _ _
This girl with a name like a winter plant might be a little prickly
What Am I?
I’m green but I’m not a pea
I’m seen at Christmas but I’m not a Christmas tree
I have the same name as a girl but I’m not an iris
I’m prickly but I’m not a cactus
I’m part of a Christmas carol’s name but I’m not ivy
