The strategy for each magic square is the same. Cut out the 16 smaller squares and then reassemble them into a large square in which all of the touching sides are equal - a magic square!
The 24 puzzles in this download come in three levels of difficulty. Level 1 is easiest with the outside of the completed magic square being blank. Level 2 has only the top and bottom edges of the magic square being blank. Level 3 is challenging, with no blank spaces to help figure out where the small squares fit in the magic square.
