Today I’m excited to be adding one more to that collection, as I have created a set of kid-friendly Space Sudoku puzzles designed for kids in preschool through early elementary school.
Note: For more space-related printables, see my Space Unit Study page.
Sudoku is a great way to exercise one’s brain with fun, engaging, puzzles that stimulate critical thinking and cognitive skills.
The goal of Sudoku 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.
In the Space Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use images of astronauts, constellations, and space satellites instead of numbers.
In the download, I have included one playing board with a 9×9 grid and three playing boards that have been shrunk to a 4×4 grid in order to make the game age appropriate for young children.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Space Sudoku games included in the download:
