Football Brainteaser

With the Superbowl coming up next weekend, here's a fun little brain teaser you can use to stump your older kids (or husbands, coworkers or other adults!)





NOTE:  I used crayons and eraser with my son because that's what a mom with kids has on hand.  However, you can use just about anything to make your goal posts and "football". (especially considering I might have learned this trick years ago in a bar with drink stirrers and a crumpled cocktail napkin! ;)  )

  9. Good thing you showed the solution. I would never have come up with that. All the things I tried didn't work. LOL I saw it on Natalie Dixon's site and came over here.

  10. Haha, I wouldn't be so mean as to give the brainteaser without the solution (and I didn't even make you turn your computer screen upside down to read it! ;)
