Tips: You many need to solve these puzzles along size your child until they get the hang of the goal of sudoku and how the puzzle is solved. Try thinking aloud with statements like, “Let’s look at this row. We have 3 colors and 1 is missing. What color is missing?” or “This spot can’t be blue because there is a blue already in this row.”

    Thank you for sharing these beautiful resources.

    I have developed a Cross Numbers Puzzle that’s similar to Sudoku in which a number can not be used more than once in any column or row. I have called it Sudoku Octangles.

    You can improve your memory, concentration, logical thinking and deductive reasoning skills as well as math addition and multiplication.


    I hope you like it.
