Sink Riddles

For the last couple of weeks we’ve been publishing a series of household item riddles, with the first few of them being located in a bathroom.

We’re continuing that series today, although this will be the last of the bathroom riddles for now as it’s also the start of a series of kitchen riddles for kids. That’s because today’s collection all have a sink as the answer.

The first six of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘sink’ completing the rhyme of the sixth one.

The seventh of these asks your children What Am I? To use that final idea, read the clue on the first line to your children and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be.

As the clue is that it’s something that’s found in their house but which isn’t a door, they might guess that it’s a bed, a wall, a TV or any number of other household items.

If they don’t guess that it’s a sink after the first clue, read them the clue on the second line and have them take another guess. Keep giving them clues until they either work out that the answer is a sink or they run out of clues.

7 Sink Riddles For Kids

Sink Riddles For Kids

This gets filled with water
But it’s not a glass or jug
It’s in your kitchen though
At the bottom there’s a plug


This is something in your kitchen
But not an oven where you bake
It is where you’d wash your dishes
If your dishwasher were to break


I am something that has a plug
But there’s no electricity
I’m in your bathroom and kitchen
And there’s a faucet above me


In the kitchen this fills with water
But it’s not because it rains
When the plug is pulled from the bottom
Then away the water drains


I am something in your home
In the room where dinner’s planned
I might get filled with water
If you wash dishes by hand


This might get filled with water
But not so that you can have a drink
It’s sometimes to wash dishes
It’s not a dishwasher – it’s a _ _ _ _


What Am I?

I can be found in your house but I’m not a door
I have a plug but I’m not a vacuum cleaner
I get filled with water but I’m not a coffee maker
I have a faucet above me but I’m not a bathtub
I can be used to wash dishes but I’m not a dishwasher
