This year, Chinese New Year begins on Friday, February 16 and we will be welcoming in the Year of the Dog.
So with Chinese New Year fast approaching, I have decided to share a Chinese New Year Sudoku game your children can enjoy.
Sudoku is a great way to exercise your child’s brain with fun, engaging, puzzles that stimulate critical thinking and cognitive skills.
The goal of Sudoku – at least when played the usual way by adults – is to fill in a 9×9 grid such that each row, column, and 3×3 sub-grid includes one and only one of each digit from 1 to 9.
Depending on the number of blank spots in the Sudoku puzzle, the difficulty can range from quite easy to extremely challenging. (I’m personally a fan of the really challenging puzzles!)
In the Chinese New Year Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use images instead of numbers. The images include animals from the Chinese Zodiac as well as lucky red envelopes and children dressed in traditional Chinese clothing.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Chinese New Year Sudoku puzzles included in the download:
As you can see, I have included one advanced playing board with a 9×9 grid and three basic playing boards that have been shrunk to a 4×4 grid in order to make the game age appropriate for young children.
