In this guide, I’ll describe the puzzles which have multiple solutions. For the ones with only one solution, you can use the hint system in the game.
This guide is still a work in progress as I’m still playing through the game as well. Feel free to leave solutions in the comments below and I’ll add them to the list.
I’ll only list the solutions of puzzles which has multiple solutions, as for the others the hint system in-game will most likely help you out.

The missing solution for leaves in Nitty Gritty is to match up the holes in the leaves 🙂
For keys, the last solution is based on the teeth of the key. Straight key goes first, then key with 2 and 3 prongs. Then the key that looks like a 4, the gold squiggly key is a 5, then 6 prongs, and the key that looks like a 7.
The explanation for the crates solution 2 is that the tape on the boxes forms two rectangles.
You haven’t mentioned the solution for coloured stones in part 4 – not sure what the non-hint solution is – it’s the only one in the whole game I haven’t gotten 🙁
The only 2 star in chapter 5 is the candles: (1) all candles the same height (2) ascending in height from left (lowest) to right (highest). The match will increase the height of the candle when white and decrease when black, click on the flame to extinguish.

The only multi-solution one in part 5 is the candles: (1) all candles the same height (2) ascending from lowest (left) to highest (right). When the match has a white tip it’ll increase the height of the candles, and decrease when black, click on the candle’s flame to stop it.
second solution for the boxes is following the tape on the boxes to form two rectangles (one inside the other)
You can follow the arrows or the tape on the one with the boxes
Chapter 4 colored stones alternative solution is to put the dual colored stones in the corners with their matching solid stone between them. The stone will all the colors stays in the center.
Thank you so much! I was stuck on that for ages!
Solution #2 for the boxes is the line the tape up so that they are connected instead of the arrows.
at Nitty Gritty where you have to stack the boxes is the second way to sort them by the tape, where there will be a square in another square
