Highlights magazine, which was created in 1946, has been providing entertaining stories and puzzles for kids for decades. For most kids, the best parts of each issue are the puzzles, which usually feature cartoon-like drawings and some type of hidden picture.
Even though Highlights is created for kids, some of these puzzles are a real challenge. A collection of the magazine’s “hidden words” puzzles have been circulating around the Internet, and kids and adults alike have spent hours trying to find the answers.
Each picture features a drawing of a completely normal event or situation, but there are six hidden words within the image. Words can be hidden in a character’s clothing, on the ground, in the sky, or anywhere else. For most people, finding all six words in one puzzle could take hours. Some people with good attention to detail notice all the words right away.
One puzzle features a family, complete with a cat and a dog, reading in their living room. All the words are related to books and reading. Another puzzle shows a group of kids playing outside in the snow, and all the words have to do with wintertime. One of the most challenging puzzles is an image of a family outside working on their garden. The puzzle has six cleverly-hidden words about plants, but a few of the words are almost impossible to notice.
Puzzles like these require you to pay close attention to details to find all the answers. Although this collection of images has left many people stumped and frustrated, they’re a great way to spend some time testing your brain.
