Little Riddlers 2022 Video

It's rewarding, fun and helps them enjoy poetry!

Little Riddlers will help your 4 to 7 year-olds learn to write riddle poems, which is guaranteed to help them learn to love poetry!

There is an interactive video that is a step-by-step guide on how to write a riddle poem, couple this with the engaging, colourful worksheet and your child will be writing an original riddle poem in no time at all.

They'll learn the structure of a riddle, the 6 things needed to create a successful riddle poem and we're provided examples to help inspire them.

It's easy to tie in with your current topic or why not be inspired by summertime, favourite things or even storybook characters!



To make sure your entries are valid, please follow the rules listed below:

  • Only one entry per person.

  • Ask your child to write their poem (or you can type/scribe it), ensuring their name, age and address are included.

  • Your child's poem can be on the entry form or an A4 sheet of paper or typed.

  • Your child's riddle poem must be their own work!

If you are unsure on any rules or have any queries, please don't hesitate to Contact Us.
