The first five of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘blood’ completing the rhyme of the fifth.
The sixth is a one line riddle that contains an internal rhyme, with the seventh asking your children What Am I?
To use that What Am I riddle, read the first line to your kids and have them try to guess what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something red but which isn’t a strawberry, they might guess that it’s a sports car, rose, stop sign or a fire truck.
If they don’t guess that the answer is blood, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to take another guess now that they have some additional information. Keep going until they either work out that blood is the answer or they run out of clues.
Blood Riddles For Kids
This is found in your body
From your feet up to your head
It is a type of liquid
And it is the color red
I’m something that can be pumped
But I am not a tire
I am a body fluid
That’s drunk by a vampire
This is something you can donate
Although it isn’t money
If you cut into a rare steak
Then this is what you will see
It’s red and part of your body
But it is not lips that can kiss
Instead it’s a type of liquid
Mosquitos like to suck up this
I’m a thick liquid
But I am not mud
I’m in your body
I’m red – I am _ _ _ _ _
I’m something that is red, lose too much and you’re dead
What Am I?
I’m red but I’m not a strawberry
I have different types but I’m not an apple
I can be pumped but I’m not a bicycle tire
I can be donated but I’m not money
I contain cells but I’m not a jail
I’m in your body but I’m not your heart
