Easy Halloween Riddles with Answers
Riddles have been around for centuries and have been a popular form of entertainment for children.
Why do kids love riddles?
Kids love riddles because they are fun and challenging. Riddles are a great way to exercise the brain and find solutions to problems.
They also help develop critical thinking skills, creativity, and problem solving abilities.
Funny Halloween Riddles for Kids
Riddles are a fun way to challenge your creativity, logic, and problem-solving skills.
Riddles can be used as a game for children or adults, as a way to pass time, or even in an interview setting.
The benefits of riddles are that they allow you to flex your mental muscles in a fun way and also provide you with some insight into the mind of the person who created the riddle.
The riddles in these printables are super fun and easy to use. There are a number of ways to use them which I will outline below!
Halloween Escape Room Classroom
There are 10 riddles with answers in the pack. You can choose to use as many as you need and there are several ways to play the game.
Use it as an escape room fun project! Kids love escape rooms, there is a component in this pack which allows you to hide four ghosts around the classroom or home.
Hide the last ghost in a difficult place and add letters behind each riddle sheet for kids to complete and find!
Print as many riddles as you need to make out that word. For example, you’re hiding the last ghost under a chair.
Your word will be chair. So you will need 5 riddle sheets with each letter being behind those sheets.
Each student will complete the riddle and ‘collect’ the letter.
They will all then work out the word and go find that remaining ghost to escape Halloween!
So much fun. I also wanted to make it super simple for the kids. Most escape rooms are to difficult for this age group.
