Friday Funnie: Riddles for Kids

Sure, I could cite all the psychological studies that prove the benefit of laughter, but why not cite the best? A cheerful heart is good medicine . . . Prov. 17:22

So here's permission to laugh, a touch of grief relief, and a bit of hope for the day you can laugh freely again.

Besides asking little kids if they're married yet, I think it's always good to have a few riddles on hand for some fun. Candy helps, too, but candy doesn't materialize through blogs, although I'm working on it. Until then here are some riddles to try:

The more you take away the bigger it gets--what is it?
A hole.

What do you get when you mix poison ivy with a four-leaf clover?
A rash of good luck.

Which letter of the alphabet is an island?
T--you find it in the middle of 'water.'

In what country can fish survive out of water?

What can you hold without touching it?
Your breath.

Don't groan until you try them!
Print this out and try the riddles on the next little kid you see.

  1. Thanks.I recall a few weeks ago when the Lord clearly spoke in my heart,that it is OK to laugh,to enjoy life again.That was an eye opening moment.Since then I have started healing and really living agin.Praise God.

  2. Dear Ruth, I praise God that He spoke to you like that. It's a real turning point in our grief. It's still hard, but such a help. I know in the raw stages that people don't understand why I post these Friday Funnies, but your experience is exactly why--there will be that point in time when it's ok, when it's good and healthy to laugh again. Blessings on you.
