Potato Riddles

We’re continuing with our series of food riddles this week, with today’s batch all having ‘potato’ as their answer.

The first four of these rhyme, while the fifth is a one line riddle which also contains a rhyme.

The sixth of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, have your kids read the first line and take a guess as to what they think is being described. If they’re incorrect, they should read the second clue and guess again.

They should keep going until they either guess that it’s a potato being described or they run out of clues.
