Ladder Riddles

We’re continuing our series of riddles for kids about household items today with five where the answer is a ladder.

The first four of these rhyme, with the fourth one also being perfect for using with our superstition riddles.

The fifth of these is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue on the first line to your kids and ask them to take a guess at the answer.

As the clue is that it’s something that’s often made of metal but which isn’t a necklace, they might guess that it’s a photo frame, soda can or a hammer.

If they don’t guess that a ladder is the answer, read them the clue on the second line and ask them to guess again now that they know some extra information. Keep going until they either guess correctly that the answer’s a ladder or they run out of clues.

Ladder Riddles For Kids

You would put your feet on this
But it’s not a ball you’d kick
Instead you would walk up one
To get into your attic

~

If there’s something high you need to get
But you can’t reach it as you’re not tall
Then you might climb up the rungs on this
After leaning it against a wall

~

If your upstairs windows are dirty
So outside they need to be cleaned
You might use this to climb to reach them
Once against the wall it is leaned

~

If you know your superstitions
This riddle shouldn’t get you stuck
If you walk under one of these
Then beware – you’ll have bad luck

What Am I?

I’m often made of metal but I’m not a necklace
I’m often stored in a garage but I’m not a car
I can sometimes be extended but I’m not a deadline
I’m associated with a superstition but I’m not a mirror
I can help you reach things that are high up but I’m not a chair

Mirror Riddles

We’re continuing our series of riddles for kids where the answers are items you’d find in your household, with today’s set all having the answer of a mirror.

The first five of these are rhyming riddles, then there are a couple of one liners. Finally, we’ve also created a What Am I? riddle.

To use that final idea, have your children read the first line and guess what they think is the answer. If they’re incorrect, they should read the second line and guess again.

Your kids should keep going until they either guess correctly that mirror is the answer, or until they run out of clues.

Mirror Riddles For Kids

This item can be used
To see what is right there
An evil queen used hers
To find out who’s most fair

There’s two of these on the sides of cars
And two on the side of a truck
If you accidentally break one
You’ll have seven years bad luck

It’s sometimes round and it’s sometimes tall
It reflects the fairest of them all

They’re sometimes on a wall
And sometimes on a shelf
And when you look at one
You always see yourself

When you look at this
You see perfection
Because what you see
Is your reflection

It would be correct to say this does reflect

When you see me, you also see you

I reflect things but I’m not a puddle

To make sure you don’t have bad luck
And have everything be fine
Make sure that your path isn’t crossed
By this dark as night feline

If you see this animal
And find that your paths are crossed
Try to walk a different way
Or bad luck will be the cost

Something you avoid I bet
To make sure your path’s not crossed
