Winter Hex Colour-by-number puzzle

Explore how pictures can be represented in different ways with this Pixel puzzle.

Computers break an image up in to lots of small squares, called pixels. Any shape that tessellates (fits next to itself leaving no space) would work instead of squares.

Computers use different numbers to tell which colour each pixel is: a kind of code. You can also invent your own code.

In this pixel puzzle we’ve used hexagons instead of squares and a times table code for the colours. Colour in the numbers from the 3 times table blue and all others yellow to get a winter picture.
