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
