And, these are the easy warm-ups just to get you started! As Albert Einstein once said, "Imagination is more important than knowledge," and every puzzle here encourages youngsters to think creatively and find ingenious solutions--not just parrot facts they've been spoon-fed. Some play with language, others tell stories, still more present visual challenges. Give this "kick yourself" example a try: it's one that seems hard.but when you learn the answer you won't believe you missed it! A woman has five children. Half of them are boys. How come? Now do this picture puzzle: Can you form four equilateral triangles using just 6 toothpicks? Good luck!
