It’s not just for kids. Print mazes and puzzles for all ages.

jbum_at_disneyKrazydad.com by Jim Bumgardner is an amazing website for printable mazes and puzzles. The mazes are graded: Easy, Intermediate, Challenging, Tough and Super Tough! And, there are puzzles that teenage as well as adult children will enjoy. These include various forms of Sudoku, (Have you heard of Kidoku, a smaller-sized Sudoku for kids?)  Kakuro and Slitherlink.

In Galaxy Puzzles, you fill in the horizontal and vertical edges to form a galaxy shaped island around each circle, which represents the galactic centre. Set aside a few hours with your children to compete on who’s faster at completing these puzzles.

Jim describes himself as a senior nerd at Disney Interactive Labs. He’s essentially a programmer / musician / composer / data-viz expert / author / artist / puzzle constructor / teacher with a passion for making software art and software toys.

Jim is a witty and endearing writer. His humour peppers the website and its accompanying blog. In an e-mail interview with Dads for Life, Jim said, “I originally started the website to raise money for my daughter’s college fund. I was making a lot of puzzles for myself and my wife, and I thought other people would enjoy them.”

“My daughter is out of college now, but I am still actively working on the website, and I add new puzzles every year,” added Jim aka dad@Krazydad.com.
