I’m Katie from Gift of Curiosity, and I’m thrilled to be guest posting at Teach Beside Me! One of the things I love best about blogging is the creative outlet it provides me to create fun and educational printables that spark children’s learning. With February approaching, I have been creating Valentine printables to celebrate the upcoming holiday. Today I’m excited to share my free Valentine Sudoku Printable Puzzle with Karyn’s readers.
Have you ever played Sudoku? Usually played with numbers, the objective 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. In the Valentine Sudoku Puzzle I am sharing with you, I have adapted the game to use pictures instead of numbers.
Plus, I have shrunk the playing board to a 4×4 grid in order to make it appropriate for young children.
Here is a sneak peak at the pages included included in this printable. Note that in addition to the three puzzles that have a 4×4 grid, I included a bonus 9×9 grid puzzle for more advanced players.
