Puzzle #181: Hidden Cross

This is a wonderful puzzle – one of those “2 minute” puzzles that will be fun to do as a family. I have taken this from Martin Gardner’s Colossal Book of Short Puzzles and Problems. It appeared originally in the 1978 issue of the magazine “Games”.

The task is to trace in the larger figure a shape geometrically similar to the smaller one shown besides it.

Happy tracing!
