There is something in each kaleidoscope pattern to lead you toward the solution of the puzzle-a shape, a texture, a color, a design, etc. Once solved, flip to the answer page and see if you are correct! I have also included a hidden letter on each puzzle page. Find the letters to solve the hidden message!
