Here’s a collection of six riddles for kids where the answer is a window, so there are perfect for using with all of our other household item riddles.
The first four of these are rhyming riddles, while the fifth is a one line riddle which also has an internal rhyme.
The sixth of these 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 take a guess as to what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that has a frame but which isn’t a bicycle, they might guess that it’s a pair of glasses, a door or a photograph.
If they don’t guess that a window is the answer, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either guess correctly that it’s a window or they run out of clues.
Window Riddles For Kids
This might be open when it’s hot
And be closed if it has rained
If you look on some old churches
This has glass that has been stained
This is something found throughout the house
Of that you can be very certain
Made of glass so you can see through it
But sometimes covered by a curtain
There are a lot of me on schools
On a car and your home too
Made of glass and can be opened
In order to let air through
Here’s a household item riddle
So it’s time to use your brain
This is an item with a frame
And some glass that’s called a pane
I help to keep out rain and I’m always a pane
What Am I?
I have a frame but I’m not a bicycle
I’m found throughout the house but I’m not a photo
I’m sometimes tinted but I’m not a pair of sunglasses
I’m mostly made of glass but I’m not a fish tank
I can often be opened or closed but I’m not a door
