January 29th National Puzzle Day

Do you remember those summer vacation days from school where you and your friends would sit around the dining room table and put a puzzle together? I do, of course I grew up on a farm and the cows weren’t really all that helpful.

Now if you were as lucky as I normally was, you would open the brand new box and put the puzzle together to find it was missing a piece or two. That was always fun. But I do remember putting together the ones that were complete and the sense of accomplishment that it was done.

Over the years puzzles have become more and more complicated, sometimes taking children out of the process entirely. (And taking up the dining room table for a month or more!)

And puzzles put together and then glued and finished with a coat of varnish make for a great wall covering or even flooring of a game room! Not only do they brighten up the room but they remind you of something you accomplished!

So gather up your friends and get to work! There are a lot of interesting choice for puzzles these days and think of much more you’ll know about each other after hours, and hours, and hours, and hours, and hours of sitting there putting it together.

How to celebrate – Go find a puzzle that interests you. Get the whole family together to put your puzzle together. Make your own puzzle from the blank ones available where you can place any picture on it you like.
