Felt Tangrams

Felt Tangrams (3)

Consider me a tangrams convert; these puzzles have turned out to be a fantastic way for Travis to entertain himself in those moments when I need him occupied. If you don’t want to purchase a set from the store, make a quick version from felt!

I cut out the various shapes that make up a tangram set using a different color for each shape. I free-handed the following: large triangles, small triangles, squares, trapezoids, and hexagons.

Now simply print out pictures of tangrams and set your child to work. If the picture printed out big enough, Travis could work right on the paper.

More of a challenge were small diagrams that he then had to design on a surface next to the paper.
