How to play:
The egg is made of nine (9) pieces, use all nine to form 20 different birds shown on the cards.
You can play next to each other with different images or competing to see who makes the same silhouettes first.
Each card contains the solution as well, when you think you have got it, flip the card over and see if you were right – no cheating though!
The multitude of these flying creatures includes some species unknown to Ornithologists.
When you have finished the deck of cards, see what other shapes you can make. Try to invent your own shapes as well.
Origins of Tangrams:
A long time ago in China, lived a man called Tan. Tan’s greatest possession was a fine ceramic tile. One day while cleaning his tile he tripped and the tile fell and broke into a range of geometric shapes. Tan spent the rest of his life trying to put the tile back together again. He was not successful, but he did succeed in creating many different geometric designs. Tan enjoyed creating the designs. Tan’s puzzles, later called Tangram, were passed on through generations and from country to country. Tangram origins are older than 2000 years but the earliest known printed reference to tangram appears in a Chinese book “only” 200 years ago.
