Lime Riddles

For the last few weeks we’ve been publishing a series of fruit riddles. We’re continuing that series today with some more riddles for kids where the answer is a lime.

The first three of them rhyme (with the word ‘lime’ completing the rhyme of the third one), while the fourth asks your children What Am I?

To use that fourth idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them guess the answer. As the clue is that it’s something the size of an egg but which isn’t a pebble, they might guess that it’s a hamster, a candlestick holder or a small bar of soap.

If they don’t guess that a lime is the answer, read them the second clue and ask them to try guessing again. Keep doing this until they either work out that it’s a lime that you’re describing or they run out of clues.
