Dear Reader,

As the year winds down, I just wanted to express my gratitude. Without you, I wouldn’t be able to spend my time exploring the educational side of the Web, as I’ve done for sixteen years now. It’s been a wild and wonderful ride. Thank you for your support.

Happy New Year!

See ya on the Net,

Riddles Printable (** for premium members only)

What gets wetter and wetter the more it dries? What can you catch but not throw? What goes around the world but stays in a corner? No sooner spoken than broken. What is it?* If you enjoy a challenge, then today’s mind-bending riddle sites are for you.

AzKidsNet: Riddles
To reveal the answers to these riddles, simply hover your cursor over the riddle or the purple push pin. The answer should appear in a floating box, depending on your browser. The site will most likely not work well on mobile platforms. “What kind of cheese is made backwards? Edam!”

Brain Food: Riddles
“Puzzles For the Brain To Gnaw On.” Brain Food’s puzzle collections includes hundreds of problems organized into seven categories: Riddles, Logic Puzzles, Word Puzzles, Lateral Thinking Puzzles, Tricky Puzzles, Word Boxes, Numbered Puzzles, and Logi-Number Puzzles. You’ll find the Groaners listed under Tricky Puzzles. “I have two U.S. coins that add up to fifty-five cents. One is not a nickel. What are they?” Click Solution to reveal “A nickel and a half dollar. Only one is not a nickel.” I can hear you groaning from here.

NIEHS Kids Page: Brainteasers
“Scientists get to solve puzzles every day, because science and research involve finding solutions from the clues that we are given. Just like with brainteasers and riddles, the answers to science mysteries are not always easy to see at first. With time and effort, they eventually become clear.” Unique sections in this National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences site are Palindromes, Optical Illusions, and the Mind Over Matter tricks.
