Tangram is a puzzle of Chinese origin that is made of seven flat geometric pieces. The objective of the puzzle is to use all seven pieces to configure into a specific shape (given only an outline or silhouette). The pieces can not overlap.
This iron on DIY kit is perfect for ages 3 and up (all the way up!). The seven pieces are arranged to make a shape and then ironed on to T-shirt, tote bag or throw pillow.
