Holiday Puzzle 2015 #1 – Missing Word Puzzles

Success comes from knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming” – John Wooden

It’s the start of another December and that means Holiday Puzzles!  Last year’s Holiday Puzzles were a big hit with a lot of puzzlers.  I hope to repeat the fun and challenge again this year!  Much like last year, this year I am starting off with Missing Word Puzzles.  I plan on making Tuesday “Missing Word Puzzle” day.  So each Tuesday in December, there will be a new set of Missing Word puzzles.  I’ve received a lot of great feedback from everyone about last year’s Missing Work Puzzles.  Today we will start with some straightforward Missing Word puzzles, that even younger puzzlers can figure out..

As a refresher, just like the last year, in each puzzle, a word or words are missing, replaced by their first letter.  In order to solve each puzzle, you need to find the missing words.  Here’s an example of how they work:

Puzzle1:       12 I in a F

The solution is     “12 INCHES in a FOOT”  (“I” stands for “INCHES” and “F” stands for “FOOT“)

Below are ten puzzles to try

  • 2 P in a P

  • 3 W on a T

  • 3 BM

  • 4 Q in a D

  • 5 N in a Q

  • 4 Q in a G

  • 24 H in a D

  • 12 I in a F

  • 3 F in a Y

  • 7 D in a W

These are all beginner puzzles to get the holiday season started and they’re just fun puzzles to ponder.  They are not original puzzles, but I still like to share them.  Good Luck and pass the puzzles onto others who may enjoy them! 

Here are some clues, in no specific order – Time, Money, Sightless Rodent, Vegatable, Shapes, Letters and Measurement.
