Tomato Riddles

Here are four riddles for kids where the answer is a tomato. These are therefore perfect for using with our other vegetable, fruit and food riddles.

The first three of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘tomato’ completing the rhyme of the third one.

The fourth of these ideas is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue that’s on the first line to your kids and ask them to try guessing what they think the answer could be. As the clue is that it’s something that’s red but which isn’t a stop sign, they might guess that it’s a sports car, a strawberry or lipstick.

If they don’t guess that a tomato is the answer, read your children the second clue and have them guess again. Keep going until they either work out that the answer is a tomato or they run out of clues.
