tangram puzzle

Tangram Organizer which can change shape

Inspiration for the storage cum decoration organizer has been taken from the Chinese puzzle, Tangram made of seven pieces (one parallelogram, one square, and five triangles) that can be arranged to match particular designs.

The Tangram (Chinese game meaning “seven boards of skill”) is a dissection puzzle consisting of seven flat shapes, called tans, which are put together to form shapes. The objective of the puzzle is to form a specific shape (given only an outline or silhouette) using all seven pieces, which may not overlap.

Happy Easter everybody!

I can’t give you chocolate Easter eggs, but here I present you the Magic Egg tangram puzzle. This variation of the traditional tangram consists of 9 pieces cut from an egg-shape, and has a tendency to hatch numerous varieties of birds. Can you make the bird shapes above using all the egg’s puzzle pieces?

Solutions here, but it’s a fun puzzle, so you should make a solid version out of cardboard or wood and give it a try first. There is an app on iTunes as well.
