The first three of these are rhyming riddles, while the fourth is a What Am I riddle.
To use that final idea, read the clue that’s on the first line to your children and ask them to take a guess at what they think the answer could be. As the clue is that it’s something that’s black and white but which isn’t a newspaper, they might guess that it’s a salt and pepper shaker, a barcode or a penguin.
If they don’t guess that a zebra 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 going until they either work out that the answer is a zebra or they run out of clues.
