Can You Solve All These Short Riddles Without Looking At The Answers?

When we are kids we solve all kinds of riddles, tasks and problems as part of elementary education. As we grow up we somehow lose the fun of solving riddles and working our brains, as adults most of the tasks we do are more complex but certainly more repetitive and connected just to one field. When did we lose our fun to try and solve things just for the fun of solving? We should not let our age tell us to stop enjoying the simple things.
