Can you believe that Mother’s Day is just a few days away? I wonder what my kids are going to do for me. I hope its pancakes or French toast for breakfast.
I don’t expect any gifts from my kids. Our son just got his first job and hasn’t started yet, so he doesn’t have a dime to his name. Our daughter is a college student and doesn’t make that much either.
Honestly, I don’t need “things” for Mother’s Day. I’m happy with breakfast or a handmade card.

I loved doing puzzles when I was a child. Back in the day the puzzles were made out of wood (I did have a few cardboard ones). In fact I still have several of my wooden puzzles from my youth. One day I plan on gluing the pieces in place and using them as artwork on the wall. I think that would be fun to do.
I still enjoy doing puzzles, I just don’t have the time like I used to. That is why I like the Magic Jigsaw Puzzle app. I can take puzzles with me to enjoy where ever I go – even during my lunch break at work. You can also enjoy your Magic Jigsaw Puzzles between devices.
Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is also available in 10 languages and can be enjoyed around the globe. If you travel a lot for work (or for fun) you can enjoy puzzles where ever you go. Magic Jigsaw Puzzles has 27 million members with 4 million users who use the app actively throughout the month. The app is also one of the top 100 bestselling apps.
You can even play on your computer.
Unlike other apps, Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is constantly updating their puzzle collection with high definition photos.
There are five difficulty levels which means this app is fun for young and old alike. The difficulty level refers to the number of pieces it takes to solve the puzzle. The fewer the pieces the easier it is to complete. I prefer easier puzzles when I am using the app on my lunch break since I don’t have a lot of time. I find a quick puzzle or two to be very relaxing.
Kids and parents can enjoy the same puzzle. All you need to do is change the difficulty level.
I would much rather have my young child enjoying putting together a puzzle then playing a violent or mindless game. Puzzles can be educational too. They help with cognitive skills, problem solving as well as global (big picture) and analytic (details) aspects of learning.
Puzzles are great for adults too. As you know, it’s important to give your brain a “mental workout” on a regular basis. It keeps your mind healthy. Keeping your brain active is important to keep it functioning well.
I enjoy the available images for the puzzles. I especially love the landscape ones and the puzzles featuring animals. And thanks to Nat Geo there are plenty of gorgeous puzzles.
You can even make puzzles out of your own photos! That is one of my most favorite features. Upload your photos and turn them into puzzles. What a wonderful idea. I could imagine uploading a photo of the grandchildren to create a puzzle for grandma and grandpa to enjoy putting together. With Mother’s Day coming up it would be fun to create a puzzle using mom’s favorite photo of her children or her family.
You can share your completed puzzles with family and friends as well as with the Magic Jigsaw Puzzles’ community. They even have tournaments that you can complete in.
