Microscope Riddles

Microscope RiddlesHere are six riddles for kids where the answer is a microscope. These are therefore great for using with all of our other medical, chemistry and science riddles.

The first four are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘microscope’ completing the rhyme of the fourth, while the fifth is a one line riddle that contains an internal rhyme.

The sixth and final idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line to your kids and ask them to try to guess what’s being described. As the clue is that it’s something that has a slide but which isn’t a playground, they might guess that it’s a water park or a Powerpoint presentation.

If they don’t guess that a microscope is the answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess now that they have some extra information. Keep doing this until they either guess that the correct answer is a microscope or they run out of clues.

Sofa Riddles

Sofa RiddlesOur series of household item riddles for kids continues today with six that all have a sofa as the answer. These are therefore also great for using with our other living room and furniture riddles.

A couch is also an acceptable answer, except with the third riddle as one of its clues is that it’s also known as a couch. If you’re in the UK, feel free to accept a settee as the answer.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth is a one line riddle which also has an internal rhyme.

The sixth riddle asks your children What Am I? To use that idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and have them attempt to answer it.
