Our series of animal riddles for kids continues today with five where the answer is rhinoceros.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, the fourth is a one-liner and the fifth asks your children What Am I?

To use that What Am I? riddle, read the clue on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer is.

If they’re incorrect, read them the second line and have them take another guess. Continue doing this until they either guess that the answer is rhinoceros or they run out of clues.

I am a type of family pet
That is sometimes known as a feline
If I get into an accident
It’s OK because lives I have nine

And they tend to have a long tail

You might see in someone’s house

For the last few weeks we’ve been publishing many different riddles where the answers are all household items and more specifically things that you would find in a bathroom.

We’re bringing that series to an end for now with today’s set of riddles for children which all have ‘towel’ as their answer.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, the fourth is a one-liner and the fifth asks What Am I?

To use that fifth idea, have your kids read the first line and attempt to guess what’s being described. If they’re incorrect, have them move on to the second clue and take another guess.

They should keep going until they either work out that the answer is towel or they run out of clues.

But not because you make me cry
It is because my purpose
Is to ensure that you get dry

So you don’t have to lay on the sand
Then once you’ve been in the water
With drying you, I help lend a hand

Many times I would bet
The more that you get dry
The more that it gets wet

I can be used to dry any tears that you cry

What Am I?

I’m rectangular but I’m not a kitchen table
I’m usually made of cotton but I’m not a T-shirt
I absorb water but I’m not a sponge

I’m found in a bathroom but I’m not a toothbrush

This item can be used
To see what is right there
An evil queen used hers
To find out who’s most fair

And two on the side of a truck
If you accidentally break one
You’ll have seven years bad luck

It reflects the fairest of them all

And sometimes on a shelf
And when you look at one
You always see yourself

You see perfection
Because what you see
Is your reflection

When you see me, you also see you

I’m found on a wall but I’m not paint
I’m found on the inside and outside of a car but I’m not a light
I’m found in a hairdresser’s but I’m not a pair of scissors
I appear in Sleeping Beauty but I’m not an apple
I reflect things but I’m not a puddle
