A Family Puzzler for Thanksgiving

puzzler: ben's mother

Here’s a fun family puzzler to try out at your Thanksgiving gathering.

Ben’s mother has 3 children.  (Show 3 coins on your palm–a nickel, dime, & penny.)  The first one is named Nicole (push the nickel forward).  The second is named Diamond Jim (push the dime forward).  What is the third child’s name?

3 kids puzzler

Answer:  Ben!

The coins are a distraction, and an effort to get them to say “Penny”, the remaining coin.  (“Ben’s mother has 3 children”–so 1 of them must be named Ben!)
