What Am I? Riddles

Directions

Make up riddles about animals, objects, or people for your child to solve.

  1. For an elephant you could say, "I am very large; I have a long trunk; I live in Africa. What am I?"
  2. For a fire truck, you may say, "I am big and red; I have a loud siren; I help put out fires. What am I?"
  3. Describe people by what they do (doctors, nurses, police officers), or friends and family by how they look (tall, wears glasses, long hair).
  4. Be specific to help your child solve the riddle without getting too frustrated.
