Here are some riddles for children where the answer is ‘leprechaun.’ These ideas are therefore perfect for using with all of our other St Patrick’s Day riddles.
The first four of these rhyme, while the fifth asks your kids What Am I?
To use the fifth riddle, read the first line to your kids (or have them read it themselves), then get them to take a guess at what they think is being described.
If they don’t answer correctly, read them the second clue and get them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess the correct answer or run out of clues.
If you’re using these for some kind of St Patrick’s Day activities, you may also like these scavenger hunt ideas with the same theme.
Leprechaun Riddles For Kids
He has a ginger beard
And green clothing I am told
He’s always on the lookout
For coins for his pot of gold
If you capture one of these
At the end of a rainbow
He will grant you three wishes
If you will then let him go
A green jacket
Covers his arms
Don’t ever steal
His Lucky Charms
At the end of rainbows
Is where I can be seen
You will know that it’s me
Because I’m wearing green
What Am I?
I have a beard but I’m not Santa
I have a green jacket but I don’t play golf
I have red hair but I’m not Ron Weasley
I have lots of gold but I’m not a pirate
I’m associated with rainbows but I’m not Noah
