The Impossible Puzzle

Mum gave DH an “impossible puzzle” for Christmas and we’ve been messing around with it ever since. It is only 9 pieces and the idea is to end up with 6 “sticky-out” bits and 6 “holes” around the edge and no gaps in the middle.
Enter the friends who came to tea yesterday. The dad managed to do it by flipping some of the pieces over so that finished puzzle was a combination of red & black. Didn’t say in the instructions that he couldn’t do that so we let him have it. Then the 19-year-old duaghter had a go and within 10 minutes she’d done it!
The image shown is the proof … and don’t we feel a little dim!
