Entertain Your Brain!

 

It’s a good thing to challenge your brain in different ways. If looking for a great screen-free way to do so, you may want to consider activity books. I was introduced to a collection of brain games which include Number Puzzles, Crossword Puzzles, Logic Puzzles, Word Searches, Sudoku, and Instant Brain Teasers all compiled together in the new Mind Stretcher Puzzle Book series from Reader’s Digest.

Each of these books is in color and have 192 pages total. The books have a lay-flat binding so you can keep your place and solve the puzzle at hand much easier without losing your spot by fighting with the book to stay open. Answers to all the puzzles are located in the back of the book so you can check your answers after or reference if you get really stuck.

The puzzles are all mixed in meaning there’s not set sections. I like the way the books are compiled but one can pick whichever puzzle they’d like to do in whatever order.  Do all of the same or mix it up!

These are great to do at home or away from home. I would have loved to have these on my late airplane trips which lastest for many hours. These are great to take on vacation, to the coffee shop, to delve into at the park, or any other place you’d likely find some solace.  Perfect for ages 9 and up!

I’m pleased with the two below that I was sent to check out and spotlight. I recommend them both highly and am happy to point my friends and readers to them to get for themselves or as a gift this holiday!  If you love these, you’ll be pleased that two more are coming out in the series this upcoming Spring season!
