This Easter, Britons have been enjoying a rare four-day weekend where they have the opportunity to stretch their legs and put their feet up for a couple of extra days.

During this time, there is plenty of time to catch up with family, to rest, to go out, and to read the news on and offline.

There is also, as a result, plenty of time to stretch the mind either through crosswords and sudokus or by trying out new brainteasers such as the one above.

Courtesy of greetings card marketplace thortful, the image is a type of observational brainteaser, one where the key is to spot the anomaly or anomalies in the shortest time possible.

According to the people behind this brainteaser, it can take as little as 21 seconds or as long as 14 minutes to spot all 10 little chicks.


    Did you solve the brainteaser? No worries if not, the answers are above. The chicks are dotted all over the place from the heads of the egg and bunny walking together to the grass they’re walking on.

    On the importance of these brain puzzles, thortful said: “Brainteasers are an excellent way to pass the time, but did you know they are also a good way to keep your mind in good shape?

    “Brainteasers have demonstrated their ability to inspire creativity across multiple skills, enhance cognitive processes, and foster problem-solving capabilities. Additionally, engaging with brainteasers can lead to an increase in IQ and contribute to reducing stress levels.”

    What’s more, brainteasers act like exercise for the mind in the same way that running, swimming or cycling does so for the arms and legs. The more effective exercise the brain does the healthier it will be in the long run, potentially reducing someone’s risk of developing dementia.

    This doesn’t mean brainteasers will stop someone from developing dementia, other factors such as lifestyle and genetics can have a greater impact, but they can help keep it sharper for longer.

    As well as observational brainteasers, there are two other types to keep the mind entertained. One type is mathematical brainteasers which involve solving a maths puzzle while analytical brainteasers require the user to solve a riddle.
