How to play sudoku for kids
Despite this being a math game, there is actually no math involved to work out the puzzles.
All the child needs to do is use logic to work out what the missing numbers are in each row, column, and each 3×3 square.
Each empty cell in a row and column has to be a different number between 1 and 9.
For younger children, it might be easier to add darker grid lines around each 3 x 3 square to make it even easier.
The first sudoku puzzle is the easiest and should be completed first.
The reason we love Sudoku in our house is that there is no right or wrong way to do them. Let the kids try and work it out on their own, I am sure their method will be completely different from yours.
As we are a super competitive family I print one out for all of us to do and see who finishes first. I hate to say I am yet to win! I try to use math, where my son can just look at it, and know. Well, that is what he says when I ask him.
Maybe he doesn’t want to let me know his secret.
