Hi! At school my teacher told me to think of a riddle that has to move things or objects around.
Example: There is a fox, chicken, and a box of seeds. Get across the river with a boat that could only carry one thing at a time. If you leave or put the chicken with the fox, the fox is going to eat it, if you put the seed with the chicken, the chicken is going to eat it.
Carry the chicken over first.
Go back and get the seeds.
Bring the chicken back and leave it alone while you carry the fox over.
At this point, the fox and seeds are on the far side of the river. The chicken is alone on the near side.
Finally, carry the chicken across.
Can you think of a riddle using different things that follow this pattern?
