Tangrams is one of the fun jigsaw puzzle games, race games and indoor party activities for children.

Kids love puzzles. Adults love puzzles.

What's not to like about them?

They make us think, give us a good challenge, and make us happy when we see the finished product.

It's always exciting when we can solve something.

There's something about these brain teasers that spell fun, critical thinking, concentration and good times with family and friends.

And, when you make your own puzzle, no matter how simple or elaborate, it seems to double the fun factor!

Beat the clock as you assemble the cut ups that the other players have made.

Before You Start

3 or more players
Ages: 8 and up
Need cardboard and scissors

Playing Area

The cardboard can be in the shape of a square, circle or rectangle.

You make the choice!

Each player cuts his cardboard into 4 to 6 smaller pieces, and then mixes them up.

For older kids, you can have them cut their cardboard into 6 or 8 pieces.


The adult leader shouts "go!" and the players give their pieces to the player on their left.

The players want to put these puzzle pieces together as quickly as possible.

When a player assembles his puzzle he shouts "done!" and the other players stop their puzzle building.

If his puzzle is correct he gets 10 points.

If it's not correct, the other players start building their puzzles again.

Once a player has a puzzle put together correctly and scores 10 points, the players mix the pieces up and pass them to the player to their left.

Once each player has tried to put together everyone else's puzzles, the play is over.

The End

The winner is the player with the most points.

Have fun with this! Good luck being the overall winner!
