KenKen® means “wisdom squared,” and for good reason! This little puzzle will give your child an opportunity to improve her problem solving skills. KenKen® requires players to create addition problems in order to solve for blanks within a grid. By using knowledge of simple facts and a process of elimination approach, your child can practice addition and critical thinking at the same time. Here's how:

Using the digits 1-4 in this 4x4 puzzle, fill the small squares with digits so as not to repeat a digit in any row or column, and so that the digits within each heavily outlined area will equal that area’s corner number when combined using addition. For more information visit www.kenken.com.
