A Rebus is a special type of puzzle that uses words and pictures to represent phrases or other longer words. Brain teasers that use words in funny positions or stories that replace words with pictures in the middle of a sentence are two examples of a rebus. They first became popular back in the 1700s (about 300 years ago!), and they can be a lot of fun to figure out, and to create! Below are some links to some simple rebus rhymes and puzzles for you to enjoy.
