This week's Unplugged Project idea was PUZZLES!
I did not manage to pull together much of a "project" this week but the idea did serve as inspiration for several puzzle activities.
First, I found some sodoku puzzles that only use the numbers 1,2,3,4 and taught my five-year old how to do them. He did 2 this week with some assistance but seemd to catch on to the concept pretty well. I am not sure if he will continue or not. I *thought* he was working on his 3rd one when I realized he was actually just doodling in the boxes! This also inspired me and I have been trying to practice my sodoku skills as well. So far I am still at "Easy"
Second, my husband led a rousing scavenger hunt and the boys both loved it. He made lists for each child and then after that, my 5-year old made a list for his dad to find. My husband (very smartly) included putting all items back where you found them as part of the game, and they could not move on to the next round until that was done.
These were really fun unplugged activities that the whole family participated in. Unfortunately, I have no good pictures to share.
Oh yeah, and we did do the cereal box puzzles a couple months ago as well so we did not repeat that this week.
