Animal Riddle Poems

Turn favorite or unusual animals into riddles with animal riddle poems. Fun to write and fun to solve!


  • Make a list of animals fun to write about.
  • Choose one and write a list of their interesting behaviors and features that make them unique.
  • Write descriptive lines from the animal’s point of view using first person “I”.
  • Arrange the lines into patterns to make a poem. Rhyme is fine! (but optional)
  • Print the poems into a riddle book or on cards with answers on the backs

    which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to
    know how you center yourself and clear your head prior to
    writing. I have had a tough time clearing my mind in getting my
    thoughts out there. I do take pleasure in writing but

    usually lost simply just trying to figure out how
    to begin. Any ideas or tips? Thanks!
