So I’ve been around the Bible and kids all my life so it’s natural that I would know some Bible riddles. I thought these might be fun for you to try out on your kids for April Fool’s Day. But I posted them for another reason too. I am seeing a lot of Children’s Ministry leaders on Facebook wanting ideas on how to connect to the kids during this time of quarantine. Many are sending cards and some are running out of things to say – so here are riddles to include. Sending them some riddles would be an idea for any week … but especially this week. I also added some Bible references if you want to develop them into a lesson or devotional thought.
