8 Fun Riddles to Practice Spanish with Your Kids


The most important advice I like to give those raising bilingual children is to remember to make the journey as fun as possible. The minute speaking another language becomes a chore or an obligation, it’s more than likely that your kids will rebel and refuse to speak it.

In the past we’ve talked about music, board games and even tongue twisters as tools to make sure learning Spanish is a fun activity for your kids. Today, I want to share some riddles in Spanish that will hopefully help you do the same. Some riddles are extremely difficult, but the ones I’ve chosen are a few pretty simple ones that I remembered from when I was a child. Enjoy!

Adivina, adivinanza,
tiene un solo ojo
y una cara ancha.
(La panza)

Verde por dentro
verde por fuera
si quieres saber qué es, espera.
(La pera)

Sal al campo por las noches
si me quieres conocer,
soy señor de grandes ojos
cara seria y gran saber.
(El búho)

Fríos, muy fríos estamos
y con nuestros sabores
a los niños animamos.
(Los helados)

Me pisas y no me quejo,
me cepillas y me mancho,
y con mi hermano gemelo
bajo tu cama descanso.
(Los zapatos)

Empieza por “a”
y no es ave,
sin ser ave, vuela.
¿Quién será?
(La abuela)

Una en la tierra,
una en la luna;
pero en el cielo no
encontrarás ninguna.
(La letra A)

Tengo patas bien derechas,
pero no me puedo mover,
llevo a cuesta la comida
y no la puedo comer.
(La mesa)
