Wanna hear a pirate joke?
Why couldn’t the pirate crew play cards? Because the captain was standing on the deck!
My kids love a good pirate joke, as do I.
And with my new Pirate Sudoku printable, I’ve got a pirate-themed activity you can use to make learning a jolly task as well!
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 Pirate Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use images instead of numbers.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Pirate 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.
