A Puzzle For Your Brain

Here’s a word puzzle you might like. Good for your brain too! You start with a given word. Then you change one letter and create a new word. Then you change another letter and create another new word.

I give you the first word and the last and the number of steps. You figure out all the rest.

Here’s an example. The word is COLD and I want you to change it to the word WARM in 4 steps. So: COLD>CORD>WORD>WARD>WARM

See how it works?

Here’s an easy one you can do in 2 steps. Change HOT to TOP. HOT>___>TOP. Easy, right?

Okay! Your word is CLIMB. Take 7 steps and end up with STEPS. If you are a parent or a teacher, work this along with your students. Great exercise. Also let them make up their own word puzzles for you to try.

Have fun!
