It must not be a coincidence, but since I posted about 48 piece puzzles a few days ago, my kids have been puzzle obsessed. They must have seen a picture on my computer that reminded them of puzzles, but that was all it took. My 5 and 7 year olds have re-done every 48 and 100 piece puzzle in our house. My 10 year and 3 year olds joined in for the fun off and on, but the middle kids were hooked.
Comments: According to my Amazon account, I first purchased this 10 piece ocean puzzle in 2014, when my oldest would have been 4. I can not even count how many times my kids have done this puzzle. Sometimes they like doing it alone and don’t want anyone to help them. Other times they all work on it together as a group.
There is something so calming and satisfying about working on a puzzle on lazy days. I’m so glad my kids are able to enjoy this old school, technology free activity.
I really love the 100 piece floor puzzles by Melissa and Doug. We also have one with a rainforest theme, though I’ve had my eye on a safari one for awhile. Ravensburger’s 100 piece puzzles are fantastic quality as well and they have a larger selection of pictures. Find a theme that your child will enjoy and watch them get to work!
