My middle boy quite likes a puzzle or two, and although he struggles with much of life, sitting with someone to do a jigsaw is very satisfying for him, when it’s one he can cope with.
For my review, I chose a 50 piece puzzle rather than a larger one. It’ one he is likely to be able to do for himself, with simply someone sitting beside him for a little support and guidance, and to give reassurance that he’s doing well. Wentworth have all kinds of puzzles, for all kids, big and small….as well as their parents, grandparents, and anyone looking for a little distraction time.
Wentworth Wooden Puzzles are suitable for everyone. The farm scene is something that he is passionate about. Actually, anything digger, tractor and farm related has him a very happy boy indeed. And as anyone knows, pleasing a special needs teenager is never an easy thing to do.
Wentworth Puzzles come in a broad range, to cover everyone. From art to animals, nature, nostaligia and dedicated children’s jigsaws.
Why Wentworth Puzzles
As a present, especially, they’re presented in a lovely box, with the puzzle pieces kept in a drawstring bag, which ensures they never get lost. It’s so easy to lose one or two small pieces from a box once it gets tatty, or has been well used.
The puzzles are made in the UK from sustainable sources, and are 100% UK made. On their website, you can even turn your own photo into a personalised puzzle. Now that’s a great and unusual present for anyone.
Jigsaws have benefits for school-aged kids, at any time of the year, but especially during school holidays, particularly when encouraging them to take a break from technology. Mindfulness is the word Wentworth use, to explain the calming effect of a jigsaw puzzle on our moods. So, if jigsaws are good for those who suffer from stress and anxiety, it makes sense to include one or two in your Xmas shopping baskets over the next few months.
These are especially good for children, as the thick wooden pieces mean the edges don’t get dog eared and ripped easily, which is always a good thing if you want to pass puzzles down to younger children or donate them when you’re finished.
And in case you’re already on the lookout for your Christmas Shopping, how about this Farmyard at Christmas for a lovely post Xmas day parent/child bonding session…
