Our series of weather riddles continues today with nine that all have rain as their answer.
The first eight of them rhyme, with the word ‘rain’ completing the rhyme of the eighth one.
The final option is a What Am I riddle. To use that, read your kids the clue on the first line and have them take a guess at the answer.
The clue is that it’s something which falls but doesn’t get hurt, so your children might guess that it’s a leaf, a teardrop or something else.
If they don’t realize that it’s rain, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep going until they either guess that the answer is rain or they run out of clues.
Rain Riddles For Kids
It drops from way up high
It is made of H2O
When the sun shines on it
There is a colorful bow
You might see it in the sky
But it is not the moon
It is what would make you wet
If there was a monsoon
A waterproof jacket
You would be glad you wore
If lots of this fell down
In a major downpour
In addition to the sun
This is what enables plants to grow
It is a four letter word
And it comes before forest and bow
This is something you see
When outside there’s a storm
It comes down from the clouds
And appears in droplet form
If there is bad weather outside
An umbrella you’d use I bet
To stop this stuff falling on you
And getting you all soaking wet
This isn’t a difficult riddle
It won’t leave you in a muddle
The answer is what falls from a cloud
And then leaves behind a puddle
This can fall on your head
But it won’t cause you pain
It drops down from a cloud
And is wet – it’s called _ _ _ _
What Am I?
I fall but I don’t get hurt
I pour but I’m not a jug
I come before the word bow but I’m not hair
I help plants grow but I’m not the sun
I can make you wet but I’m not a bath
