A Day at the Zoo - a logic problem
by Shelly Hazard

Can you find all the words in the word list in the grid below? The words can be found horizantally, vertically, diagonally, and backwords.

One day, five mothers each brought their only child to the zoo. The children had a glorious time together watching the different animals and eating their favorite snacks. The kids were so good, at the end of the day each mother let her child get one item from the souvenir shop as they were leaving the zoo. Can you determine the full name of each child, each child's favorite snack and animal, and the souvenir each brought home?

  1. Julia, who loves cotton candy, didn't like the elephants. Mary didn't get a caramel apple. The child who got the stuffed animal liked the giraffes best.
  2. Alan Small, the girl who liked the lions, and the child who got the activity set didn't want to leave the zoo.
  3. Neither of the boys got fried dough, but one got nachos and the other one liked the monkeys best. Tom didn't get a poster.
  4. The Brown child almost got a coloring book with Mary but finally decided on a poster.
  5. Tom, whose last name isn't Proctor, got a toy gun but didn't get a caramel apple. The MacGregor child had fried dough.
  6. Beth, who didn't like the giraffes or the elephants best, got an activity set.
