January 29th International Puzzle Day

January 29th International Puzzle Day

Today was created back in 1995 but puzzles have been with us, on record, since 1760 when Britain’s John Spilsbury created a map he cut into pieces and then allowed others to put back together again. Puzzles can be fun and helpful on rainy days when children can find nothing else to do (and adults in some cases). Over the years, puzzles have become more complex and some are really difficult to put together. It can either be challenging, or frustrating, but there is a reward when you finish it and all of us are proud of what we have accomplished.

How to celebrate – Spend the evening putting a puzzle together with your family. Using a protective covering, create a floor or wall made out of puzzles. Find that one piece of the puzzle that we all seem to lose.
