Details

The object of the Tangram is to arrange the seven pieces, called "tans", into one of many possible forms and shapes that contain all seven pieces in a non-overlapping manner - a difficult task, but also extremely satisfying upon completion.

One side of each of the included templates shows the outline of each piece that makes up the shape while the other side shows only the overall outline. Start with the more detailed template and once the person is successful placing the pieces, the challenge can be increased by flipping the template over and following the instructions to lead the person to complete the puzzle using the outline alone.

Package Includes: Wooden tangram set in a wooden box, three full size laminated templates (3 shapes with both outline and piece placement templates for each), plus one template to assist in putting the pieces back in the box and complete instructions.

Suitable For: Great for almost anyone with dementia or Alzheimer's. People with more abilities will be able to use the templates fully while those with more challenges will enjoy handling the pieces and creating their own shapes.

Beautifully crafted of elegant wood, so that it feels as much like a piece of art as an activity. We appreciated the explicit instructions that accompanied the Tangram set, too. (Posted on 6/6/2017)

Great alternative to regular puzzles! I've sat for over an hour with a client just rearranging the pieces and making new shapes, working on his fine motor skills.
