Tree Riddles

Here are eight riddles for kids where the answer is a tree. These are therefore great for using with our other riddles relating to trees as well as nature.

The first six of these are rhyming riddles, with the word ‘tree’ completing the rhyme of the sixth, while the seventh is a one line riddle that also contains a rhyme.

The eighth of these riddles asks your children What Am I? To use that one, read the first line to your kids and have them take a guess at what they think the answer might be. As the clue is that it’s something that can be chopped but which isn’t a carrot, they might guess that it’s a potato, an apple or an onion.

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

Leaf Riddles

Here are eight riddles for kids where a leaf is the answer. These are therefore perfect for using with our other tree, fall and nature riddles.

The first six of these are rhyming riddles, while the seventh is a one line riddle that also contains a rhyme.

The eighth and final one 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 might be. As the clue is that it’s something that can be blown but which isn’t a bubble (think leaf blower), your children might guess that the answer is a whistle, a candle or a kiss.

If they don’t guess that the answer is a leaf, read them the second clue and have them take another guess. Keep doing this until they either work out that a leaf is the answer or they run out of clues.

This thing is usually green
But it’s not a plate of peas
On the flag of Canada
There’s a maple one of these

On evergreens it remains

And sometimes small

On a branch I can be found
When I’m from a deciduous

You might turn over a new one
And it is part of a lettuce

But in winter they might have none
And there’s a certain phrase that says
You can turn over a new one

Out in nature I can be seen, I don’t fall from an evergreen

~

I can be blown but I’m not a bubble
I drop but I’m not a tear

I come from a tree but I’m not an apple
