Bored Kids? 3 Ways Jigsaw Puzzles Help Kids Grow & Develop!

Cooped up inside? To beat boredom, my kids and I always did jigsaw puzzles. To this day, we all love doing them. We take one with us to the beach. It's fun and we love the challenge. Everyone takes a section and we work and work until it's complete. Some puzzles go on for weeks depending on the size. Make sure you use a board and a table that isn't constantly in use. That way, you can take your time and move it if needed. 

Puzzles are great for 

  • memory,
  • awareness, and
  • promoting positive sibling interaction.

Take a break from screen time and work on a puzzle as a family!
