We’ve spent the last couple of months publishing riddles about items you can find around the house and we’re continuing that series today with five riddles where the answer is a pair of scissors.
The first three of these are rhyming riddles, while the fourth is a one-liner that has an internal rhyme.
The fifth of these is a What Am I Riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and ask them to take a guess at what they think the answer might be.
As the clue is that it’s something that comes as a pair but which isn’t some socks, they might guess that it’s a pair of headphones, underwear, shoes or glasses.
If they don’t guess that the correct answer is scissors, read them the second clue and ask them to guess again. Keep doing this until they either work out that a pair of scissors is the answer or they run out of clues.
