Here are four riddles for kids where a tent is the answer, which means these are great for using with our other camping riddles.
The first three of these rhyme, while the fourth is a What Am I riddle.
To use that last one, read the first line of it to your kids and ask them to try taking a guess at the answer. As the clue is that it’s something that can be put in a bag but which isn’t a sandwich, they might guess that it’s potato chips, a laptop or grocery shopping.
If they don’t guess that the answer is a tent, read them the second clue and have them take another guess now that they have some extra information. Keep going until your children either guess that a tent is the correct answer or they run out of clues.
Tent Riddles For Kids
If you want to camp outdoors
This will protect you from the rain
It is held up by some poles
A sleeping bag it does contain
If you like being round nature
And overnight want to camp
You might sleep inside one of these
To stop you from getting damp
Some can be bivouacs
And then there are tipis
A round one is a yurt
So what are all of these?
What Am I?
I can be put in a bag but I’m not a sandwich
I have a door but I’m not a car
I have poles but I don’t have any penguins
I’m sometimes made of canvas but I’m not a piece of art
I’m sometimes found in a field but I’m not a cow
I have people sleeping in me but I’m not a hotel room
