My kids love puzzles. My two year old comes into my bedroom most mornings and says “Mommy, you do a puzzle wit’ me?” She isn’t alone. When I was growing up, on any given winter Sunday afternoon, you could find my mom and I watching a movie and putting together another 500 piece puzzle. The best part of all was putting that LAST piece into place and running your hands over the puzzle and admiring your work.
One great resource for interesting, fun and even challenging puzzles is Springbok Puzzles. They sell puzzles from as few as 12 pieces up to masterpieces with more than 2000 pieces! I loved so many of the pictures – they are so bright and vibrant. They make me want to break out my card table, pop in movie and lose myself in the interesting shapes and colors.
If you happen to be a budding photographer, you might have a chance to have your photo transformed into a puzzle! They are currently running a contest where you can submit your favorite one and it may be chosen for the next new puzzle to be sold by Springbok Puzzles. Details are coming this Saturday, January 29th, so you will want to follow them on Facebook so that you can get all of the information.
One fact that I found so interesting is that this coming Saturday, January 29th is National Puzzle Day! I never knew such a day even existed!! Looks like I learned something new today!!!
