Riddle Me An Inference

We're in full St. Patty's mode these days! 
The students have been working hard on making inferences while they read.
I thought it would be fun for them to transfer the skill by creating their own silly riddles.
Some were very serious and others were very silly.
They turned out fantastic!
 I love seeing how their little minds work.
I am shiny and bright yellow and I live with a little man. What am I?
I have different colors. You can not see me all the time. I am in the sky. What am I?

People say I am lucky. I'm at the end of the rainbow. Who am I?
Here's your freebie if it's something you can use in your class too!
Nothing fancy, but it does the trick. Click to download.
*Steps for the hand print leprechauns:
1. Paint one hand green, minus the middle finger.
2. Hold the student's first 3 fingers together, allowing the thumb and pinkie to extend out.
3. For the face, paint the palm peach and the fingers/heel of the hand orange.
Do not paint the thumb.
4. Add google eyes, a hat and a little glitter for sparkle.
