10 Brain Teasers for Children

I do love a good brain teaser. I learnt a few of these while I was a guest on board the Disney Magic. Our server used to give them to us while we waited for our food to arrive. Some of them I got quickly, others left me stumped until we were told the answer. Then of course followed the “ohhhh I see now”.  The others I learnt as a child at school.

Make sure you follow my brain teasers board on Pinterest, and don’t forget to save the pin for later.

These are great to do while you are waiting for food to arrive at a restaurant. They are also good for the whole family to do, not just children. Some require just crayons or something similar (matchsticks/craft sticks will do), while others need paper and pen.  I will post the answers at the end of the piece (no peeking). Best of luck to you.

Remove 6 crayons to make 10.

Brain Teaser 2
