Photo a Day: 21st January

When I was small, I loved jigsaws.  I remember two in particular that we had at home, probably because they were round ~ Henry VIII and his 6 wives and the naval battles of Horatio Nelson.  The Boy Child doesn't really show that much interest in putting jigsaws together, although he likes to play with the pieces and scrutinise the box.  What works for him just now is that either Mummy or Daddy puts a jigsaw together and he {The Boy Child} admires the finished image.

Lovely page and angled shot - the world seems to divide into the lovers and haters of jigsaws, and I've never yet met anyone who can take 'em or 'leave 'em! You are very dedicated to help him out. :)

Mine do puzzles the same way. They 'help' me by handing me random pieces that 'should go there'

My DS didn't really fancy jigsaw puzzles at 5 or 6 years old. He was more "into" them when I found some which had heat-sensitive patches, which went from opaque (black) to an image when you rubbed them with your finger. These were on puzzles that had very busy cartoon images, with a theme - like a pirate ship, with above and below water pictures of pirates, fish and sea creatures etc - all a big adventure, with lots to talk about. Then he was keen on putting the puzzle together, so we could discuss the pictures.
This was the puzzle we had - there are others in the range: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Galt-Magic-Piece-Jigsaw-Puzzle/dp/B000296MBA
DS loved it!
