Pumpkin Riddles For Kids

You might pick up one of these
When you go out to a patch
Carve it, put in a candle
And then light it with a match

~

I spy with my little eye
An orange squash baked in a pie

~

Remove the seeds
And carve a face
Your front doorstep
Is where it’s placed

~

You do this well
And carve it right
You’re sure to give
Someone a fright

~

The bigger it is
The more it feeds
This orange squash
Has lots of seeds

~

If you buy a big one of these
Then you surely will not starve
As what’s inside can feed many
And they’re also good to carve

~

What Am I?

I have seeds but I’m not a watermelon
I can be made into a pie but I’m not an apple
I can be carved but I’m not roast beef
I’m orange but I’m not an orange
I’m associated with a patch but I’m not an eye
