This summer as we usually do, I’m trying each week to include some new and exciting math fun.
In the form of puzzles or chocolate challenges or number games or just a new spin on old school problem-solving, any way we can pull in
Especially this year we’ve loved the challenging puzzles created by Erich Friedman.
These puzzles, you guys, are tough.
This week we tried the Birdwatching Puzzles.
Here’s the skinny. . .
Birdwatching Math Puzzles–Super Challenging and Tricky:
The goal with these mazey puzzles is to move from the left side of the puzzle to the right, ‘visiting’ each color bird the same amount of times.
The ‘birds’ are actually colored dots, though, and it’s not as easy as it sounds.
Though Maddy and Cora didn’t even give these puzzles a go, Owen did.
He sat down at some point in the day–I never actually saw him do it–but the evidence was there.
He tried again.
He did it.
He graded himself.
He moved on.
That’s summer, y’all.

Remember, I did not make these up or design them; I am the furthest thing from a tricky puzzle creator. These are from Erich Friedman’s site, which you can visit here: Erich’s Puzzle Palace.
All I did was find the site, love it, and create easy-to-print puzzle pages for our tabletop surprises.
Thank you, Erich, for sharing your puzzle awesome with us!
