I use the word "puzzling" not as adjective (meaning confusing) but as a verb (the act of putting small pieces together to make a really cute picture).

This week we have been puzzling.

I put up a card table in the family room and things are taking shape. This puzzle is a Joan Steiner "Can You Find It" puzzle of a kitchen. Small everyday items are used to look like a dollhouse-sized kitchen. Can you see the black stove? It is made from an old Walkman. And the brown turkey on the counter? It is actually an acorn. I think this style of puzzle is so fun and interesting.

My favorite puzzle of all time is of a general store! Ceaco Can You Find? - Trump's General Store

I have heard quite a bit lately about how puzzles are "good for your brain." While everyone is touting health and wellness this January, I am doing my part by suggesting you get yourself a puzzle and have fun watching it all come together.

Bravo Anne - perfectly relaxing for the holidays but giving your brain a workout at the same time!

We usually have a puzzle going during the winter months, but haven't done one yet. It is not only good for the brain, but for the soul as well! I will have to find a puzzle that we can start on. Thank you for your post!

We love these type of puzzles and picture books in our house, too. I love what they do with pretzels! Mmm...
