Easy Riddles for kids – Excellent way to encourage critical thinking

Hello friends, today I am going to talk about the super fun and easy riddles or brain teasers for kids. This game can be played with kids as young as 3 years old. These Easy Riddles with answers for kids are not only fun but also great for your child’s growth and development. A great way to stimulate their brains and encourage critical thinking.

We parents keep looking for fun games through which we can make our kids learn and grow, isn’t it? It has been proved through various studies kids learn more when they are happy, playing and are free to do whatever they want to do. Through play, they can learn and can memorize what we have taught them.

My kid does not like to play with toys very much. He loves to talk, explore and ask questions. So this is his way of learning about the world around him. To be honest I like his way of learning. As he is learning about what he wants to learn and not what I want him to learn. So the mom in me tries to find out the ways to let him learn things in his way only.

Few days back, when I was talking to my kid just like that I gave him some clues and asked him whether he can guess I am talking about which animal? To my surprise, he answered correctly. That was the moment I thought I should start playing with him small cute and funny riddles and let his brain work and grow.

At the age of 3 years usually kids start recognizing some common animals and know one or two special characteristics about each animal. So why not keep those little minds at work and let them think and guess about the animals we are talking about. Kids love to play these mind games.

This is an easy riddle game you can play at home and also while travelling with your kids. These easy riddles will also make them learn about some special characteristics of animals.

So, let’s have a look on some of the riddles we can enjoy with our kids.
