Chair Riddles

Here are five riddles for kids where the answer is a chair. These are therefore perfect for using with many of our other riddle themes such as household items and pieces of furniture.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘chair’ completing the rhyme of the fourth.

The fifth riddle asks your kids What Am I? To use that idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to guess what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that has four legs but which isn’t a dog, they might guess that it’s a cat, a horse or a table.

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

Scissors Riddles

We’ve spent the last couple of months publishing riddles about items you can find around the house and we’re continuing that series today with five riddles where the answer is a pair of scissors.

These ideas therefore also work well with all of our other kitchen, office and school riddles for kids.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, while the fourth is a one-liner that has an internal rhyme.

The fifth of these is a What Am I Riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and ask them to take a guess at what they think the answer might be.

As the clue is that it’s something that comes as a pair but which isn’t some socks, they might guess that it’s a pair of headphones, underwear, shoes or glasses.

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

As the clue is that it’s something that has a handle but which isn’t a hammer, they might guess that it’s a bag, a car door or a cupboard.

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