What is blue and yellow, and who loves bananas? A minion! Your little minion will find these banana riddles a-peeling and will want to share these mind teasers with everyone! Not only are they perfect for your kids to share with their friends, but you can also use them in the classroom for some extra fun. 

Riddles and jokes are great when you have a group of kids that need entertainment. When I had lunch duty at my daughter’s school, I would try and stump the kids with riddles during lunch. It was always a huge hit. By the end of the year, we were trading riddles with each other, which was something to look forward to and kept my solving skills sharp! 

Riddles can break the ice in awkward conversations and help kids and adults connect. When kids can find common ground with adults, it becomes easier for conversation to flow. Riddles are perfect for any group of kids, from classrooms to birthday parties to church groups; use riddles to break the ice. 

Here are some more riddles to check out: our Back to School Riddles and our Book Riddles are the perfect places to get started!
