Bored with Your Puzzles?

Sometimes your child does a puzzle so many times that they get bored and don’t want to do it again.
Sometimes the puzzle is too hard so your child tries it once and doesn’t want to revisit it. Sometimes the puzzle is the right difficulty level but seems to “babyish” for your son or daughter.

Do any of these sound familiar?

If so, try hiding the puzzle pieces!

Simply hiding the pieces around the room adds a new excitement to putting the puzzle together.

Sometimes we find them in a certain order and sometimes no order at all. B has even started hiding his own and finding them. Love that! =)

    I love it! You have such good ideas. Also, thanks for the info. on the moveable alphabet!! I found the boxes at the Dollar Tree and wanted to make sure I gave her credit!

    I like this idea! I’m always trying to find ways to extend the life of our puzzles. 🙂 Another something I’ve done is to fill a baking dish with dried beans and have them go fishing for the pieces. Also, I had my 4 year old set a puzzle once using a small suction cup to pick up the pieces (we have a zillion laying around from dart guns). Thank you!
