Picture Puzzles at the Royal Hospital for Children & Young People and Department of Clinical Neurosciences, Edinburgh
‘Picture sudoku’ puzzles have been created using detailed drawings of Lothian bus tickets folded in to simple origami shapes, for example, a swan, windmill, tree or aeroplane. Patients are invited to spend time looking and work out which picture is missing from each empty square. Puzzles have different levels of difficulty in areas for children and adults.
It's one of a series of picture puzzles located in waiting areas and treatment rooms, providing distraction for patients and their families. The puzzles have been created from drawings of familiar items that you might find in your everyday environment, including bus tickets, drinking straws, paper bags, lolly sticks and revision cards. The drawings are combined with familiar puzzle formats to create a range of unique picture puzzles, including sudoku, matching pairs and spotting hidden pictures.
