Our series of riddles with an animal theme continues today with five that all have the answer of monkey.
The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth asks What Am I?
To use the last idea, read the first line of it to your kids and have them take a guess at what it is they think you’re describing.
If they guess correctly – great! If not, read them the second clue and have them guess again. Keep doing this until they either work out that you’re describing a monkey or they run out of clues.
