  1. Those look like fun! If he’s going to use these to solve tangram shape puzzles, Anthony may want to make another copy of the parallelogram, flipped over. All the other shapes are the same no matter how you put them down, but the parallelogram is different when you flip it—like the difference between your right and left hand. And just as a right glove will not fit your left hand, some tangram puzzles require the parallelogram to go one direction and some the other way.

  2. Ooh – you made me remember I have some magnetic tangrams stashed away – the came with Grandfather Tang’s Story. Now I’m wondering what happend to that book?? Thanks for the link, Leonie, I think my kids will like doing this.
