Wooden cube puzzle
The seven shapes in this puzzle represent all the ways three or four cubes can be arranged, other than in a straight line.
These shapes go together to make a solid cube, as shown, but can be arranged to make dozens of other interesting shapes.
When there is a set of these shapes in a toy box, it is an excellent way of nurturing a child’s grasp of spatial relationships.
Cut out twenty-seven ¾” square blocks and glue together as shown – then the project is complete.
Now comes the hard part: put the variously shaped pieces together to form a solid cube. (We used ¾” blocks but you can make your cube puzzle pieces any size you like.)
