Towel Riddles

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.

Towel Riddles For Kids

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

~

You always bring me to the beach
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

~

You use this every day
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 sometimes used at a beach but I’m not a bucket
I’m found in a bathroom but I’m not a toothbrush

We’re continuing our series of riddles for kids where the answers are items you’d find in your household, with today’s set all having the answer of a mirror.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, then there are a couple of one liners. Finally, we’ve also created a What Am I? riddle.

To use that final idea, have your children read the first line and guess what they think is the answer. If they’re incorrect, they should read the second line and guess again.

Your kids should keep going until they either guess correctly that mirror is the answer, or until they run out of clues.

Mirror Riddles For Kids

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

~

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

~

It’s sometimes round and it’s sometimes tall
It reflects the fairest of them all

~

They’re sometimes on a wall
And sometimes on a shelf
And when you look at one
You always see yourself

~

When you look at this
You see perfection
Because what you see
Is your reflection

~

It would be correct to say this does reflect

~

When you see me, you also see you

~

What Am I?

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
