Solve the puzzle step by step...

A word ladder puzzle is a fun test of your knowledge of words!

The aim is to move from the top rung of the ladder and the word that is given to the bottom of the ladder.

The rule is that you can only change one letter in the word at each step of the ladder, often making it tricky to work out the solution to the puzzle!

This is what a word ladder puzzle looks like:



So with this example puzzle, the solution could look like the following:

WIRY
WIRE
WINE
WIND
WEND
SEND

Of course there are other possible solutions.

A good tip when solving a word ladder puzzle is to see whether the placement of the vowel(s) changes in the puzzle - in this instance it doesn't.

Moving the position of a vowel can be tricky as you often have several consonants together whilst moving the position of the vowel therefore it is a good strategy with word ladders to try to get the vowel(s) in the correct position as soon as possible.
