Follow these simple steps to build a fantastic puzzle.

How to create a homemade game: Tangram

 

Tangram is a traditional Chinese game. It is also known as Chi Chiao Pan, which means “board of wisdom.” This puzzle has seven pieces. By combining them in different ways, you can create multiple shapes.

The objective of the game is to create a shape by using all the pieces.  You can not overlap them, and you have to use them all. The final shapes can be simple or really complex.

Keep reading to learn how to create a set of pieces. It’s a lot of fun!

Supplies needed

  • Thin cardstock. The one we have used for this tutorial is from Hema.
  • Pencil.
