I've added critical thinking to our daily to do's, and I try to vary it every day for each kid, trying to stretch those brain muscles!  Today DS and I came across this and I HAD to attempt it.  I got stuck, so DS11 joined in while I helped DD with spelling...between DS and I we solved the puzzle only 2% can solve! (two heads are better than one right?)

Can you solve it?  What do you do for logic or critical thinking?

    Going to have to check that out!  I love logic puzzles and things of that nature.  DS uses Cool Math right now, it has a ton of logic games.

    DS loves cool math, he used to use it in ps and always wanted to play at home, which he did sometimes. I didn't realize it had logic games,I will have to look and put that in his plans, he will love it lol.

    It has logic games and strategy games.  There is a robot one that DS absolutely loves!  It is great because he could play for hours and I know he is exercising his brain!
