Happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is in the top three for a lot of us. That’s because Thanksgiving is the perfect combination of family, food, football, and just a feeling of comfy-coziness. The fact that Christmas is right around the corner doesn’t hurt, either! But sometimes, Thanksgiving Day can get a little tense. So why not sprinkle in some Thanksgiving riddles?

Kids will love to entertain aunts and uncles or be the riddler at the kid table. And riddles are perfect if you need to keep the kids out of your way as you baste the turkey or put the finishing touches on your famous green bean casserole. (If you really need to keep them busy, try our Thanksgiving Scavenger Hunt Printable!) These Thanksgiving riddles will make all your loved ones use their heads and hopefully chuckle a little, too! If you love riddles, we have tons more (and so does All Pro Dad!). You can even get primed for Christmas with riddles like this one: How do kids know Santa is in the house?
