Like storytelling, riddles are able to access the pictures in your mind which help you solve the puzzles they pose. In fact many riddles cannot be solved without using the process of visualisation.
Riddles also teach children to think both logically and laterally – to make new connections and stretch their thinking. They are part of a process called synectics which, from the Greek, means to join together different and irrelevant ideas. Used in this way they can develop both individual and group creativity and problem solving.
