Tangrams!

picture-5.pngOoh, you played with tangrams when you were a kid? Me, too! I wasn’t very good at them, but I have to thank my parents for always having that tangram book at nose level for whenever I wanted to give tangrams a try.

In case you need a quick refresher, tangrams consist of 7 pieces: 5 triangles of different sizes, a square and a parallelogram. These shapes are rearranged to create all sorts of pictures. Every individual shape is used in each picture, and none of the pieces overlap.

Here, if you’re good at pushing shapes around with your mouse, give tangrams a try online. I like pushing shapes around with my fingers, and happily there are tangrams available in a variety of materials.

But ooh, these are by far and away some of the best uses of tangrams I’ve seen. Book lovers, drool along with me. Trot over to their site for more variations oh wow.
