The puzzles encourage flexibility in thinking by asking for multiple solutions to the designs.

A total of 52 designs providing 136 challenges.

For ages 7 and up.

I'm delighted this book is now available in digital form at my Teachers Pay Teacher store. Please check it out.

Tan-Tastic Tangrams

Author's note: These puzzles were originally developed in the 1980's when my own children were young. The designs were used in summer enrichment programs I held in my home and in a variety of classrooms for many years before I finally decided to submit them for publication. I hope you enjoy them as much as we did.


"This book is dedicated to Brian, Martin, Susan, and Stephen and to a healing God
who is able to put the broken pieces of our lives together into a joyous whole."
