The Christmas PartyLogic Grid puzzles come with a handy interactive grid that will help you solve the puzzle based on the given clues.
The Thompsons were hosting a Christmas party that 5 adults and 5 kids attended. They decided to have gifts be exchanged at their party! Each adult would give each child 1 present, and receive 1 present from that child. One of the Thompson children (who was not participating in the gift exchanges) sneaked around town to figure out what each person was giving and getting because he could not think of anything except for the party and had to find something to do before he went crazy with anticipation! While he was sneaking around, he couldn't be carrying a pen and paper with him (they would be too loud!), so he had to memorize certain facts. Can you help him assemble the list adults, children, and gifts?

Children: Rose, Ashley, Brittany, Tom, and Charlie
