In order to improve your memory, I have here interesting interactive activities with different levels of difficulties.
Why don’t you create a game like this and sent it to me, so everyone can see it and play it as well?
(Highlight the web address and double click on it; once you have done that, choose: HTTP… and you will be directed immediately to the interactive game page.)
If you would like to try this memory game on your siblings or adults at home and appear like a magician, well, you have to follow this video.
What to do:
— then prepare a piece of paper with the days of the week in the same order you see in the video;
— have an envelope with the answer “red hammer” in it or a picture of the object to use as evidence to show your participant that you knew that they were going to give you that answer.
Have some fun today with this fun and addictive memory game.

Answer to the “Light Bulb Problem”:
Turn on the first switch and leave it on. Turn on the second switch for a few minutes, and then turn it off again. When you enter the room, one light bulb will be on. You’ll know it goes with switch one because you turned it on. Another bulb will be hot. You’ll know that goes with switch two because it was on for a little while. The bulb that’s off and cold goes with switch three because you didn’t touch it.
Answers to the Maths Riddle:
|a) It’s 70. You’re dividing 30 by ½, not by two. Thirty divided by ½ is the same thing as multiplying it by two, which is 60. Plus 10 makes 70!
|b) Meat. He works at the butcher shop, so he weighs meat for a living.
|c) Seven. The riddle says all but seven run away, meaning there are seven left who didn’t.
|d) Three times. On the third time, you’ll get either a white or a blue sock to match with one of the other two you’ve already grabbed.
|e) It would take 51 days. If the number of flowers doubles every day, half the garden would be full the day before, on the 51st day.
|f) 888 +88 +8 +8 +8
|g) Ashley is 22. Her mother is 22 years older, so when Ashley is 22, she’s now half her mother’s age.
Many children have been asking for more challenging tasks therefore I have decided to upload the next one for you. Remember that I will give you the answer to all of them tomorrow.
The light bulb problem
There are three light switches outside of a room– labeled number one, number two, and number three. The door to the room is closed and you can’t see in. All three switches are off.
You need to figure out which switch belongs to which bulb. You can use the switches however you want to, but can only enter the room once. How do you do it?
|a) Divide 30 by ½ and add 10. What’s the answer?
|b) A clerk at the butcher shop is six feet tall and wears size 10 shoes. What does he weigh?
|c) A farmer has 19 sheep on his land. One day, a big storm hits and all but seven run away. How many sheep does the farmer have left?
|d) Your sock drawer only contains 18 white socks and 18 blue socks. How many times do you need to reach inside the drawer and take out a sock to guarantee a matching pair?
|e) You planted sunflower seeds in your back garden. Every day, the number of flowers doubles. If it takes 52 days for the flowers to fill the garden, how many days would it take for them to fill half the garden?
|f) Using only addition, how can you use eight eights to get the number 1,000?
|g) When Ashley was 15, her mother was 37. Now, her mother is twice her age. How old is Ashley?
