These are therefore also perfect for using with our other sports riddles.
The first three of these riddles for kids rhyme, while the final one asks What Am I?
To use the last idea, read the first line of it to your kids and ask them to guess what it is that they think is being described.
If they don’t guess correctly, read them the second line and have them guess again. Keep doing this until they either guess correctly or they run out of clues.
