Transport Theme Riddles For Holidays

Kids need activities that spark their curiosity. If your kids are feeling bored at home or while travelling in the car, why not add some fun riddles to the conversation.

So, I've created these cool Riddles for kids based on our Transportation Theme craft kit this month.



These Riddles are designed to get the mental cogs moving, which can help teach your kids to become deeper thinkers. Of course, that's not to say all riddles for kids are a serious learning experience—some are just plain goofy and fun.

I think it's an amazing opportunity to connect with your kids, encourage them to think, and test their knowledge too.  I hope you and kids both will enjoy solving these riddles this school holidays.
