Riddle Me This

The children are getting ready to go back to school and their teachers are hard at work sending them snail mail to get the thinking and heading back to school mode. One of the teachers is sending out riddles.  I thought it might be fun to give a few a try.

“I am the beginning of sorrows, and the end of sickness. You cannot express happiness without me, yet I am in the midst of crosses. I am always in risk, yet never in danger. You may find me in the sun, but I am never out of darkness.”

Do you know the answer?

A cloud was my mother, the wind is my father, my son is the cool stream, and my daughter is the fruit of the land. A rainbow is my bed, the earth my final resting place, and I’m the torment of man. Who Am I?

Do you know the answer?

“I have a little house in which I live all alone. It has no doors or windows, and if I want to go out I must break through the wall. What am I?”

Do you know the answer?

“There are four brothers in this world that were all born together. The first runs and never wearies. The second eats and is never full. The third drinks and is always thirsty. The fourth sings a song that is never good. What are the four brothers?”

Do you know the answer?

“You’re in a magical bathroom with no windows and the only way things can get in and out is by an open door. You decide to have a bath so you turn on the tap, you shut the door and the handle breaks so you can’t open it, you then turn off the tap and the knob breaks so water keeps coming. How do you save yourself from drowning?”

Do you know the answer?

Riddle me this!

We have a fantastic teacher at the elementary school who has become a master of using common every day riddles to help students and often their parents and family, how to think out side of the box and solve the riddle.

Sometimes we save up a couple weeks worth for a riddle party. Some of the riddles are very simple and others very complex. The point is to think things through, have fun and learn logically together as a family.  This is the riddle that came home Friday night from Miss Transversi. Please read the rules and help the class!

Here’s how the game is played. The riddle is listed here and you simply  mark yes if you believe you know the answer and no if you do not. Then you leave a comment (not the answer) but  saying who you are and that you believe you know the answer. You will be given the first chance to be declared a winner after you leave your name and send a message. You receive 3 points if you  were the first person to follow the directions correctly and give the right answer. You will receive 2 points if you  were the second person to follow the directions correctly and give the right answer. You will receive 1 point if you were the third person to follow the directions correctly and give the right answer.

If someone writes the answer in the comments and ruins the fun that will be sad, sad, sad, All of the children in the class are picking out the ones to use here and learning something interesting about social media, web sites and how things work. 

Please remember don’t put the answer in the comments. We want everyone to play.
