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.

Often made of wood or plastic

Table Riddles

Here are seven riddles for kids where a table is the answer for each of them. These ideas are therefore great for using with all of our other household item and furniture riddles.

The first six of these riddles rhyme, with the word ‘table’ completing the rhyme of the sixth.

The seventh of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line to your children and have them take a guess at what they think the clue might be referring to. As the clue is that it’s something that has four legs but isn’t a camel, they might guess that it’s a cat, dog or a chair.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a table, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess. Keep going until they either work out that a table is the correct answer or they run out of clues.

Television Riddles

We’re continuing with our series of riddles for kids about household items with another item that you might find in a living room – a television.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles (with the word ‘television’ completing the rhyme of the third), while the fourth is a one line riddle that also has an internal rhyme.

The fifth and final one of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, 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 a plug but which isn’t a sink, they might guess that it’s a bathtub, vacuum cleaner or phone charger.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a television, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess that a television is the correct answer or they run out of clues.

Sofa Riddles

Our series of household item riddles for kids continues today with six that all have a sofa as the answer. These are therefore also great for using with our other living room and furniture riddles.

A couch is also an acceptable answer, except with the third riddle as one of its clues is that it’s also known as a couch. If you’re in the UK, feel free to accept a settee as the answer.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth is a one line riddle which also has an internal rhyme.

The sixth riddle asks your children What Am I? To use that idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and have them attempt to answer it.

As the clue is that it’s something with a back but which isn’t a camel, there’s a good chance that they’ll guess that it’s some other kind of animal. If they don’t guess that the answer is a sofa, read them the second clue and get them to take another guess now that they have the extra information.

Keep doing this until they either work out that a sofa is the answer or they run out of clues.

Living Room Riddles

We’re continuing our series of riddles for kids about things you can find around the house today with five where the answer is a living room. These riddles can therefore also be used with all of our other room riddles.

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

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

As that clue is that it’s something that has seats but which isn’t a train, they might guess that it’s a car, a movie theater or a baseball stadium. If they don’t guess that a living room is the answer, read them the second clue and ask them to try guessing again. Keep doing this until they either work out that the answer is a living room or they run out of clues.
