A fantastic puzzle, brilliant in it's simplicity - can you open the box?
This simple yet complex puzzle features a small 5cm x 7cm wooden box. The aim is to simply think outside of the box in order to open the box - not as simple as it sounds! The solution can only be found online, so there's no sneaking a look at the answer. Once you have solved the mind boggling puzzle, why not put a little something inside the box, give to a friend and (smugly!) see if they can find the gift cleverly hidden inside. Suits any age from 6 to 600...and No, the Elves here didn't open it quickly...but the 10 year old did!
Eight year olds like more challenging construction sets, and are starting to get seriously interested in science. Anything involving potential explosions or high speed makes a good present. And anything they can throw or shoot at someone else is also very popular.
