We’ve published 10 indoor scavenger hunt riddles before – those have proven to be so popular, we thought we’d publish 10 more rhyming riddles!
The original post had a list of 10 items that you could hide around the house for your kids to find. This idea works a little differently though, so here’s how to play it.
You have a couple of options here:
1. If you want to save time and not have to do any preparation, you can simply read each of the riddles to your child(ren).
2. Alternatively, write out the riddles on post-it notes and stick to the items. Where possible, put the post-its inside or behind the items so that your kids won’t spot the clues if they happen to walk past them.
The riddle for the second item will need to be attached to the first item, the third riddle to the second item and so on.
Give your kids the first clue and have them find the item. If you’ve chosen the first option above, read out the second clue once they’ve found the first item.
If you’ve chosen the second option, you should be able to leave them to it to find the remaining 9 items.
If you have at least two kids playing this and want it to be competitive, award points to help find a winner:
- One point for answering the riddle first
- One point for finding the item first
If you want to offer a prize to the winner, you could hide it in the suitcase as it’s the final item to be found.
