When was the last time you sat down to a table with 1,000 pieces of jigsaw puzzle? Was it a reproduction of a classical art piece? Maybe it was a restful landscape of hills, trees, streams, and clouds. Was it a whimsical scene with cats, dogs, and children? Of course, there are the flower gardens and butterflies. How about putting together the chemistry periodic table or even a map of the world? Sometimes you challenge yourself with a kaleidoscope of colors with no rhyme or reason at all.
I highly recommend jigsaw puzzles for all of us – from age 2 to 102 – for the multiple benefits they provide. We generally understand why we give jigsaw puzzles to children. Puzzles help children with concentration, spatial awareness, shape recognition, topic-specific knowledge, fine motor ability, hand-eye coordination, problem solving skills, language, memory, self-esteem, and social skills.
