Printable Logic Puzzles for Kids

Your students will need strong visualisation skills to solve this mystery worksheet and avoid getting tricked by the red herring in this printable mini-mystery.

The task in front of them: Work through the worksheet and decide whose present is the one wrapped in brown paper. Everyone is telling the truth, so does the present belong to the gingerbread man or the Christmas tree? Or maybe it’s the greeting card?

Students will read statements made by the characters in this logic puzzle, and they will also be presented with a selection of Cold Hard Facts. Students will then use logic and reasoning to eliminate characters and employ problem-solving skills to determine whose present is wrapped in plain brown paper.
