This Ingenious Old Puzzle Will Test Your Logic and Attention to Detail. How difficult for you?

Once upon a time, magazines came with useful information and fun little brain puzzles for kids. Nowadays, they are full of advertisements and articles based on shallow topics. That makes me sad. This little puzzle is made to test one's logic and attention to detail. The fact that kids used to do this puzzle amazes me. Even I had some issues figuring out some of the questions.

Take a look at the picture and answer the 9 questions below!

Here are the answers!

1. How many people are staying at this campsite?

There are 4 people. One can see 4 sets of cutlery and four names on the duty list.

2. Did they arrive today or a few days ago?

A few days ago. There is a spider web on the tent which means a spider has had time to build it.

3. How did they get there?

They arrived by boat. One can see oars against the tree.

4. Is the closest town far away or near by?

It is not that far away. The boys did not bring a chicken with them, so he probably walked there.

5. Is the wind blowing from the North or the South?

The wind is blowing from the north. One can see a windsock on the top of the tent that shows the direction of the wind. It is common that branches on the south side of a tree are larger, so we know which direction is south and that the wind is blowing in the opposite direction.

6. What time of day is it?

It is morning. We know which direction is south, so it is easy to figure out the time based on the shadows in the picture. The shadows show the sun is rising in the East.

7. Where did Alex go?

Alex is catching butterflies behind the tent. You can see the butterfly net.

8. Who was on duty yesterday?

Colin was on duty. Colin is looking for something in his backpack (it is marked with a ’’C’’). Alex is catching butterflies. James is taking pictures (you can see a camera tripod sticking out of his bag). That means that Peter is on duty today, and Colin was on duty yesterday.

9. What day is it today?

According to the duty list, today is August 8th; because Peter is on duty and there is a watermelon on the ground (watermelons ripen in August). Those numbers next to their names are not their ages.

What do you think? Harder than you expected?

I cannot wait to see how my kids do.
