When my grandsons were primary school age the whole family would work on a jigsaw during the school holidays. Everyone would have a go, often in a group, or sometimes alone. Social interaction wa as much fun as actually completing the puzzle.
Recently I have had an urge to undertake a jigsaw puzzle. Questioning my idea, I wondered if I was just indulging a whim or were there benefits in doing jigsaw puzzles. Undertaking jigsaw puzzles is actually very good for our brains. They challenge our dexterity by exercising our hands, spatial reasoning and logic while also improving our concentration and patience. The process works both sides of our brain which enhances out memory and accelerates our ingenuity and creativity.
Good enough reason I thought, to invest in a puzzle. So I set up a little table and set to work. I have a system, trying to get the edges done first and any blocks I can see in the puzzle. But this is the first one I have done alone, not sure how I will go.
Making progress, slowly. I will keep you posted
