Brain Exercises

Keeping our brains active may have a neuro-protective effect. Challenge your brain every day in every way (not just crosswords). Try these brain teasers:

Laughter is Good for the Brain

  1. What in an automobile engine serves no purpose, but without it the engine does not work?
  2. You have a dime and a dollar. You buy a dog and a collar.  The dog cost a dollar more than the collar.  How much is the collar?
  3. Imagine you’re in a sinking rowboat surrounded by sharks. How would you survive?
  4. There was an airplane crash. Everyone single person died, but two people survived.  How is this possible?
  5. Eskimos are very good hunters, but they never hunt penguins. Why not?

Words are Fun

The challenge is to find the way these letters can go together to make sense.  For example: He re com est hera in (Here comes the rain.)

  1. Ho meo nth era nge.
  3. Ro sesa re re dvi olets ar ebl ue.
  4. Ipl ed geal le gian cet oth efl ag.
  5. B epa tien twi tha llth atisun answe rediny ourh ear tandt ryto lo veth equest ions.

Numbers Power

Place addition signs “+” and subtraction signs “-” between the digits so that both sides of the equation are equal.

For example: 3 + 2 + 1 – 4 + 1 + 3 = 6

1.     4     9     3    7    3    1   =   19

2.     9     8    6     3    5     1   =  6

3.     3     5     3     9     6    5    =  13
