Paper Riddles

Our series of school riddles for kids is continuing today with a set that have paper as their answer.

These could therefore also be used with many of our other themes such as art, office and trees.

The first four of these are rhyming riddles, with the fifth asking your children What Am I?

To use that last one, read the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at the answer. As the clue mentions something that can cut, they might suggest scissors or a saw.

If they didn’t guess that the answer is paper, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either answer correctly or they run out of clues.

5 Paper Riddles For Kids

Paper Riddles For Kids

I do not get put on a bed
Even though I am a sheet
Instead put me in a binder
To keep your desk nice and neat


I sometimes have lines on me
And other times I am blank
I’m made from a cut down tree
Although I am not a plank


Plenty of sheets
But no bed in sight
It can cut you
But it doesn’t bite


What is this thing that you use at school?
In English it has horizontal lines
In Art it will usually be plain
And for graphs in Math it will have gridlines


What Am I?

I can cut but I’m not a knife
I sometimes have paint put on me but I’m not a wall
I come from trees but I’m not a fruit
I’m a sheet but I don’t get put on a bed
I get put in a printer but I’m not ink
