Everyone loves to do jigsaw puzzles. People of all ages enjoy spending a rainy afternoon in the comfort of their cozy home while assembling an interesting looking jigsaw puzzle. There are so many thousands of different types of jigsaw puzzles on the market today. You can do a jigsaw puzzle of a natural landscape, animals, people, or even eclectic images. The bottom line is that jigsaw puzzles provide hours of entertainment for all members of the family.
What is interesting about a jigsaw puzzle is that it can help with a child’s dexterity and development of their growing imagination. Obviously, there are certain jigsaw puzzles that would not be suitable for younger children. First of all, there are many jigsaw puzzles that would be too difficult for a young child to assemble and second, the picture could be of no interest to the child. Children want to do jigsaw puzzles that they can assemble easily and that have an interesting picture.
For example, there are a series of novels called the Diary of a Wimpy Kid. These novels have been written by the famous author Jeff Kinney. Jeff’s second novel is called Rodrick Rules. Children who have read this book comment on how they really enjoy the many pictures that the book contains. Therefore, it made sense for a puzzle manufacturer to do a puzzle based on the pictures in Jeff’s second book.
This concept will allow your children to search for the images in the puzzle that are found in the book. In fact, if two or three children are doing the puzzle together they can have a race to see who finds the image first. This will provide the children with some friendly competition while at the same time helping them to improve their detecting images ability.
This particular puzzle has a measurement of 19” by 14”. The puzzle consists of 200 easy to assemble pieces. There are four different puzzles based on the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series of books. Children who are eight years and older will have hours of fun assembling these puzzles. The puzzles can be purchased online at a very familiar retail website at a very modest cost.
Today, we see most parents using the television as a form of babysitting. Unfortunately, television does not necessarily teach the children some very important qualities. A jigsaw puzzle on the other hand will teach your children to socialize together and at the same time help them to develop their hand to eye coordination. A jigsaw puzzle is a better babysitter than most of the television programs that are available today.
The Diary of a Wimpy Kid jigsaw puzzles will provide your children with a unique opportunity to incorporate a jigsaw puzzle with a popular novel. Teaching your children the importance of reading books is also an important responsibility that parents have. By introducing your child to popular novels and then giving them the opportunity to do a corresponding Wimpy Kid jigsaw puzzle, you will be fulfilling your duty as a concerned parent.
