Celebrating National Jigsaw Day With Wentworth Puzzles – Giveaway!

Who doesn’t love a puzzle?! We all love them in our house, from Little Boy to Daddy! Every year there normally is a puzzle in Santa’s sack as a Christmas gift and we enjoy sitting down in the evening over a cosy drink to piece it together. The girls love to get involved too!

This year we have been sent this beautiful Christmas puzzle from Wentworth Puzzles. I have reviewed their puzzles before (see here) so I knew that it would be gorgeous. It comes in a strong, sturdy box with the pieces kept in a lovely little canvas bag. The puzzle is made out of quality wood which means the pieces won’t get bent out of shape and it is a puzzle you will be able to enjoy for years Β to come.

What I love most about their puzzles is their ‘whimsy’ pieces, cut out and shaped pieces that are really cute and add an extra dimension of fun to the puzzle. Little Miss J loved finding these in and amongst the pieces when we were doing the puzzle together. I love spending a little bit of one to one time with her and she loved cosying up with me in the front room and putting this together.

    I love how they occupy the whole family, you can spend quality family time together trying to solve it, it’s therapeutic and it gets you away from all the modern day technology we have become so dependent on. It’s a fabulous wellbeing activity too as it keeps your brain active and your co=ordination levels up.

    I love seeing how pieces that are apparently the same, especially sky pieces, show subtle differences when the whole scene is revealed. I love puzzles with whimsies. I treasure two puzzles created by a great uncle from old calendars during WWII when toys and materials were scarce. He incorporated whimsies into his design which he cut with a fretsaw. These included my brother’s initials as he was a child at the time.

    I find it a really peaceful activity but it’s also a great way of spending time with people without relying on gadgets and technology.

    My favourite thing about puzzles is that it can be a solitary activity but also a family one, to dip in and out of as the mood takes you πŸ™‚
