We’re continuing our series of food riddles today, with this collection all having an answer of ‘rice’.
Five of these rhyme, while the final one is a What Am I? riddle. If you don’t know how What Am I? riddles work, here’s a quick explanation:
Read the first line of it to your kids (or have them read it themselves). They should then guess what it is that they think is being described.
If they don’t give the right answer, read them the second clue and have them guess again. Keep going until they either work out that you’re describing rice or until they run out of clues.
