Here are seven riddles for kids where the answer is a pair of shoes. These are therefore perfect for using with all of our other clothes riddles.
The first five of these are rhyming riddles, with the sixth being a one line riddle that contains an internal rhyme.
The final one of these riddles asks your children What Am I? To use that idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that gets sold in a box but which isn’t breakfast cereal, they might guess that it’s an engagement ring, a phone or a toy.
If they don’t guess that shoes are the answer, read them the clue that’s on the second line and have them try guessing again now that they have some extra information. Keep doing this until they either realize that the answer is shoes or they run out of clues.
Shoes Riddles For Kids
These are things that have tongues
But don’t have any faces
You wear them on your feet
And they’re done up with laces
Although I am not cereal
I get sold in a box
I’m something you wear on your feet
But not a pair of socks
Although these aren’t glasses
They do come as a pair
They often have laces
They’re a type of footwear
Espadrilles and heels
Moccasins and stilettos
Tennis, clogs and sneakers
Tell me – what are all of those?
I’m something that you wear
I always come in twos
I get put on your feet
I’m not socks, I am _ _ _ _ _
These are things with laces, you wear them to places
What Am I?
I get sold in a box but I’m not breakfast cereal
