Our series of fruit riddles continues today with four where the answer is a pear.
The last couple of them mention homophones, while the first one also makes a reference to the word ‘pear’ sounding like something. This might therefore mean that you need to explain homophones to your children – check out this explanation to help you.
The first three of these rhyme and the fourth is a What Am I riddle. To use that fourth idea, read the first line to your kids and ask them to guess the answer.
As that clue is that it’s something that’s usually green but which isn’t grass, they might guess that it’s a frog, a leaf or an apple.
If they don’t guess that a pear is the correct answer, read them the clue on the second line and have them guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess that the answer is a pear or they run out of clues.
