Putting puzzles together as a family can be a fun and relaxing way to spend time together. It allows you to relax together, have fun, get through some frustrations, and provides a great sense of accomplishment when the puzzle is completed. We have often left puzzles out for weeks until they were put together.

One took us three months to finish! (It's holographic!)

One of our favorites, which is still together, is the spherical globe puzzle.

Puzzles provide lots of fun for the entire family. The difficulty of the puzzles can increase as the children grow. It is good for them to see your family work together on a project that may not be so easy, and to get the feeling of accomplishment when that last piece is put into place.

My mom and I used to like to dig out a puzzle and sit down together to do it. It was a great way to ensure we'd have a few evenings in a row to sit quietly together. I really enjoyed that time.

The globe one looks tough! But, I almost think the butterflies might have been even harder -- was it?

the globe one has a "secret" to putting it together, making it easier than it looks. the butterfly one is holographic which made us pretty crazy!
