Querkles

This past week has been very difficult and stressful for me. So this time I’d like to share with you all my latest puzzle book, Querkles.

Querkles starts out as a puzzle of many intersecting circles like this

These can be completed in 1 of 2 ways.

  1. Use 1 color and cross hatching the different shades or
  2. Use 5 different colors organized from darkest to lightest.

For this particular puzzle I chose to use 5 different colors.

Basically what you do is start by filling in all the number 1 spaces with the darkest color.

Then color in all the number 2 spaces with the next, lighter, color.

And keep going lighter for the number 3 spaces

And number 4 spaces

And finally number 5 should be colored with the lightest color.

Ta da!!! Simple enough, right? These puzzles have been really helpful in trying to distract me from overthinking for a little while.

If you are interested in finding your own querkles book, I found mine at Michael’s mixed in their adult coloring book section. I have only seen the animals themed book in stores but there are more out there for sale on the internet.
