Rainbow Riddles

Carrying on with our St Patrick’s Day theme, today’s set of riddles all have an answer of ‘rainbow.’

These ideas would fit in with many of our other themes though, like the Wizard Of Oz, Christian, weather and more.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, while the last one asks your kids What Am I?

To use the final idea, get your children to read the first clue and guess what they think the answer is.

If they’re incorrect, have them read the second line and guess again. Keep going until they either answer correctly or they run out of clues.

Rainbow Riddles For Kids

Violet, indigo and blue
Red, yellow, orange and green
At the end of this object
A pot of gold can be seen


This natural phenomenon
Cannot be seen when it is dark
For it’s caused by light hitting rain
To create a colorful arc


You see me in the air
But I am not a kite
I am what’s created
When water refracts light


To reach the land of Oz
Go ‘somewhere over’ this
To where the bluebirds fly
And your home you will miss


You might see this in the sky
By a waterfall it’s lower
Some say that it was first seen
After a flood by Noah


What Am I?

I’m curved but I’m not a banana
I’m mentioned in the first book of the Bible but I’m not a snake
I’m colorful but I’m not a parrot
I’m mentioned in a Wizard Of Oz song but I’m not a Yellow Brick Road
I’m found near a leprechaun but I’m not a pot of gold
