First days of school activity maybe? Fun puzzles for teens that challenge the mind with just toothpicks and a coin. This activity teaches spatial reasoning skills and geometry. Challenge the whole family to complete the tasks!
This puzzle has been around in various forms for a number of years. All forms begin with eight toothpicks or matches arranged in the shape of a fish. One version challenges you to move exactly three toothpicks to make the fish face the opposite direction. Another version challenges you to move just two toothpicks to make the fish face a different direction. Other versions add a small object for an eye that is moved along with the toothpicks.
