The first five of these rhyme, with the words ‘washing machine’ completing the rhyme of the fifth one.
The sixth idea is a What Am I riddle. To use that one, read the first line to your kids and ask them to guess the answer. The clue is that it gets filled with water but isn’t a drinking glass, so your children might try guessing that it’s a bathtub, a sink or a rain barrel.
If they don’t guess that the answer is a washing machine, read them the clue that’s on the second line and have them take another guess now that they have some further information. Keep going until they either guess correctly that it’s a washing machine or they run out of clues.

When it has been
Covered in dirt

That you would use when your clothes are dirty
Before going in a tumble dryer
You would usually first put them in me
When your jeans and T-shirts get dirty
Then you put them in this to get clean
It’s filled with water and detergent
Which means that it’s a _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _
