Have anyone at your place that loves a challenge? Here’s a fun little puzzle–called a Soma Cube that’s SIMPLE to make and not all that easy to solve. Luckily there are over 200 ways to form these blocks into a square cube, so it just may not ever go together the same way twice!
I’m thinking–perfect gift for all the wise guys in your world…think Christmas.
First step: Grab some unpainted wooden blocks–any size, you’ll need 27 of them. I used 1 inch, but you could go even smaller…or bigger.
Using wood glue– or regular white glue–start sticking your blocks together. I’ll show you the combinations below.
Be sure to wipe off any glue that squishes out–and work really hard to keep the squares even with each other.
There are seven groups of blocks that make up the puzzle. Are you ready?
You are positively welcome to leave your blocks their lovely natural wood color. It makes putting the puzzle together a bit more challenging, but if that’s your goal–then by all means leave them.
Otherwise, paint each set a different color and allow to dry completely.
Cover each set of blocks with a coat of Mod Podge and again, let them dry completely.
Check back tomorrow and I’ll show you how to solve the puzzle…
one of the ways.
