Airplane Riddles

We’re continuing our series of transport riddles for kids today with nine which all have an airplane as their answer.

The first eight of them are all rhyming riddles, with the word ‘airplane’ completing the rhyme of the eighth one.

The final idea 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 guess what it is that you’re describing.

As it’s something with a nose but which isn’t a dog, they’ll probably guess that it’s another kind of animal or a person. If they don’t guess that the answer is an airplane, read them the second clue and ask them to take another guess.

Keep doing this until they either guess correctly or they run out of clues.

Airplane Riddles For Kids

This carries lots of people
As it’s a mode of transport
You can see a lot of these
If you go to an airport

When people board this type of transport
Into different cabins they are split
It has wings, a nose and a tail
And the pilots fly in a cockpit

~

This is the thing that you might take
If you’re wanting to travel abroad
A famous type of this transport
Was supersonic and called Concorde

~

If you travel overseas
This is the transport you might get
As it flies up in the sky
And it’s also known as a jet

~

Although I’m not a bird
I have wings so I can fly
I can help you travel
By jetting off through the sky

~

I am a mode of transport
On each side there is a wing
Some are made by Airbus
Others are made by Boeing

~

You might use this to go overseas
But it doesn’t have any sails
Instead it flies high up in the sky
And sometimes leaves behind contrails

~

This is something you’d board
To take you over to Spain
As it can fly you there
The answer is an _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

What Am I?

I have a nose but I’m not a dog
I have a tail but I’m not a cat

I have wings but I’m not a bird

Car Riddles

Our series of transport riddles is continuing today with nine that all have a car as the answer.

The first eight of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘car’ completing the rhyme of the eighth one.

The final riddle asks your children What Am I? To use that idea, read the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer would be. As the clue is that it’s something with seats but which isn’t a classroom, they might guess that it’s a living room, a movie theater or a train.

If they don’t guess that it’s a car after that first clue, read them the clue on the second line and have them take another guess now that they have some additional information. Keep doing this until they either guess that the answer is a car or they run out of clues.

If you ever want one of these
Then a license you must get

But it isn’t called a jet

Though I’m not an elephant
I am something with a trunk
If I get old and rusty
You might sell me off as junk

And four doors that you can close

You use so you can steer

That can get you very far
As I have four wheels
Which means that I am a _ _ _
