Here are several different mummy riddles for kids.
One of these is a riddle that asks the question What Am I? If you want to use this one, read the first line to your kids and get them to guess what they think the answer is.
If they get it wrong, read out the second clue and have them guess again. Continue doing this until they guess that the answer is ‘mummy’, or they run out of clues.
Beneath these are all kinds of different mummy goodies – movies, toys, educational items, costumes and more.
Many of these would make good prizes, especially when playing games like the toilet paper mummy.
