Cauldron Riddles For Kids

Eye of newt and toe of frog
Wool of bat? Just a spot
These are all what witches brew
Inside this big black pot

~

If you were a wicked witch
Wanting to cast a spell on a royal
You would need this big black pot
And lots of animal parts to boil

~

Every witch needs one of these
If she is to cast a spell
It’s what she makes her brew in
That gives off an awful smell

~

What Am I?

I’m black but I’m not a puma
I’m used by witches but I’m not a broomstick
I’m made of metal but I’m not a gun
You brew things in me but I’m not a coffee pot

Broomstick Riddles For Kids

It is thanks to this item
That you can sweep the floor
It’s also used by witches
So they can fly and soar

~

They are sometimes used for sweeping
And might also be used by a witch
It was the Firebolt model
Harry Potter rode to play Quidditch

~

This is something you can sweep with
But be careful as it just may
Get stolen by an evil witch
Who will use it to fly away

~

Unless you are cleaning the house
Try not to be caught with this thing
As people may think you’re a witch
And are about to go flying

~

What Am I?

I have bristles but I’m not a toothbrush
I have a handle but I’m not a door
You use me in the kitchen but I’m not a microwave
You might sit on me but I’m not a chair
Witches use me but I’m not a cauldron

Witch Riddles For Kids

A crooked nose
And a black hat
Wart on her face
Now who is that?

Oz had good ones from the north and south
And wicked ones from the east and west
But flying around on a broomstick
Is probably how they are known best

What was my favorite thing at school?
Well now, that would be telling
But as I do lots of magic
You could say it was spelling

Standing round a cauldron
Doing lots of magic
You’d better hope and pray
Their spells don’t make you sick

Or boiling eye of newt
One of them made Snow White sick
By giving her poisoned fruit
