The first four of these are rhyming riddles (with the word ‘guitar’ completing the rhyme of the fourth), while the fifth is a one line riddle that also contains a rhyme.
The sixth idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think it is that’s being described. As the clue is that it’s something that can be electric but which isn’t a car, they might guess that it’s a chair, a light bulb or a can opener.
If they don’t guess that the answer is a guitar, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again now that they have some additional information. Keep going until they either work out that a guitar’s the answer or they run out of clues.
