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.

This is a piece of furniture
Often made of wood or plastic
It is somewhere that you can sit
But don’t use one that’s electric

But never has an armpit
But it can come after arm
For something on which you’d sit

At a table I’m often found
When I’m there then I have four legs
But at a desk I swivel round

But doesn’t have any hair
It’s something on which you sit
Which means that it is a _ _ _ _ _

Scissors Riddles

We’ve spent the last couple of months publishing riddles about items you can find around the house and we’re continuing that series today with five riddles where the answer is a pair of scissors.

These ideas therefore also work well with all of our other kitchen, office and school riddles for kids.

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

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

As the clue is that it’s something that comes as a pair but which isn’t some socks, they might guess that it’s a pair of headphones, underwear, shoes or glasses.

If they don’t guess that the correct answer is scissors, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either work out that a pair of scissors is the answer or they run out of clues.

Pencil Riddles

Our series of school riddles continues today with six that have pencil as their answer.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, while the final one asks your kids What Am I?

To use that sixth idea, read the first line to your children and ask them to guess what they think the answer is.

They might have a hard time thinking of something that’s pink at the end which isn’t lipstick, so if they don’t guess that it’s a pencil, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess.

Keep going until they either guess correctly or they run out of clues.

6 Pencil Riddles For Kids

Pencil Riddles For Kids

Although my center contains lead
It isn’t very tough
And so you need to sharpen it
In order to draw stuff

~

This is an item you use
To write something to be read
You keep it sharp on one end
In the middle there is lead

~

I’m something that you can write with
When I’ve been used I’m not as long
I often have an eraser
In case you write down something wrong

~

I can come in many colors
Like red, yellow, orange, blue or green
When you put my lead on paper
Your drawings or writing can be seen

~

This is a writing instrument
Which you might keep inside of a case
With ones which are mechanical
Push down to have lead come out the base

~

What Am I?

I’m sometimes pink at one end but I’m not lipstick
I can come in many different colors but I’m not a car
I can become blunt but I’m not a knife
I contain lead but I’m not metallic
I’m a writing instrument but I’m not a pen

Ring Binder Riddles

We’re continuing our series of riddles for kids that have a school theme with a few where the answer is a ring binder.

The first couple of these rhyme, with the third asking your children What Am I?

To use that final riddle, read the clue on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think is being described.

There are many items that might have a plastic cover, so there’s a good chance that they won’t get it with their first guess. If that’s the case, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess that you’re describing a ring binder or they run out of clues.

I have a plastic cover
And I have three rings inside
I come in many sizes
Like three or five inches wide

~

One inch, three inch, five inch
Choosing one is not a breeze
Because size can matter
When using one of these

~

What Am I?

I usually have a plastic cover but I’m not a piece of dry cleaning
I come in different sizes but I’m not a bottle
I contain springs but I’m not a bed
I contain rings but I’m not a jewelry store
I hold paper but I’m not a printer

Sticky Tape Riddles

We’re continuing our series of riddles with a school theme today with some where the answer is sticky tape.

These therefore also go well with our other riddles with an office or household item theme.

The first two of these rhyme, with the third being a What Am I? riddle. To use that third option, read the clue on the first line to your children and have them guess the answer.

As it refers to something coming on a roll which isn’t toilet paper, they might guess that it’s a roll of wrapping paper or paper towel. If they didn’t guess that the answer is sticky tape, read them the clue on the next line and have them guess again.

Keep doing this until they either guess that the answer is sticky tape or they run out of clues.

As attaching stuff is your goal
Then make sure you come looking for me
