For the last couple of weeks we’ve been publishing a series of riddles for kids with a transport theme.
We’re continuing that series today with five riddles where the answer is a train.
The first four of these rhyme, with the word ‘train’ completing the rhyme of the fourth one.
The final idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the clue on the first line to your children and ask them to guess the answer.
As the clue is that it’s something that has seats but which isn’t a living room, they might guess that the answer is a classroom, a car or a bus.
If they don’t guess that a train is the answer on their first attempt, read them the second clue and have them guess again. Keep going until they either work out the correct answer or they run out of clues.
