These 6x6 Sudoku for Kids with letters are perfect for kids ages 6 to 10 (1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades) when the 4x4 puzzles are no longer a challenge. They support the development of logical thinking and concentration skills, while also helping kids get acquainted and more comfortable with letters.
Compared with the 4x4 grids, these puzzles introduce more cells and letters. Due to this, the analysis will now have to be more careful and thoughtful. The concept of a block is now presented to kids for the first time too.
Letters take the place of the traditional digits in these, but the rules of the Sudoku remain the same. The goal is to complete the grid without any repetitions per row, column or block. To do so, the player must use the hints allocated at the beginning of the game.
Each puzzle has one single solution and the key to reveal it is in these allocated clues. The kids need to pay careful attention to them and use logic to understand them. Trying to guess is never an option in Sudoku!
The players and/or adults also have the option of printing these 6x6 Sudoku for Kids with letters so the kids can practice their writing skills while enjoying the game.
These puzzles have exactly the same rules as a traditional 9x9 Sudoku. The main differences are that letters take the place of numbers and there are fewer cells compared with regular puzzles. Kids graduating from the 4x4 grids must now also have into account the concept of blocks.
