Can anyone recommend a site with puzzles for kids aged between 10-14?  My kids are quite intrigued with some of the ones I am doing in Lab II but I know they would just give up if they tried ones that are just too hard.

All suggestions would be gratefully received.

Many thanks.

I think get the picture at Hadtoplayon.com and Say What at puzzletome, would both be suitable for kids, both of these let you see 20 puzzles at a time, so they would not get frustrated, by being stuck on a puzzle.

And the Festive Fun puzzles at Puzzletome would also keep them occupied with the added interactivity of Shockwave.

When all else fails, there's always PANIC to fall back on.

Thanks ASA and The Hirsute one.  Now I just have to get out of Lab II to give them a go on the computer (or save up for another one!!).

You didn't think this through properly - once they get hooked you'll never get another look in  Very Happy
