Cool puzzles, illusions and whatever else you think would entertain a very bright 9 year old boy who is going to be spending the next number of weeks in hospital. Printable would be a bonus.

Due to circumstances I am unable to visit but want to send something in the mail every day. I am going to limit it to things that I can print/draw. I am looking for things that will entertain, amuse and kill time. I am trawling though
The Moscow Puzzles
for puzzles suitable for his age. I also found some good ideas in this thread
Any puzzles I send will have a smaller envelope inside with the answer, also a difficulty rating and a hint if he wants one. He has tons of books and access to games consoles etc I think that he will get a buzz out of getting a hand-picked puzzle/illusion each day.
I am going to order this book
today and send them one by one if the book can be suitable disassembled. Any other book suggestions would be welcome.
