I absolutely love spending time with my children doing something as a team or learning together .
Turning off the t.v and computer is like a magical moment that needs to happen more often as we sometimes find interest in things that we would not normally enjoy.
Over the past couple of years , we have found a great interest in puzzles both large and small and because they're suitable for all ages and have so many different themes or collections , we can always find something new .
This month we were sent 'Puppy Dog Pals , 24 piece Giant Floor Puzzle' which to my youngest son was a great excitement .
My youngest son Joshua is currently 2 years old (nearly 3) and we are going through the fine motor skills learning of building and putting things together as well as taking things apart and so puzzles are a fantastic lesson for him not only visually but also physically.
Ravensburger's Giant Floor Puzzles are great fun, me and my boy sit on the floor and can spend a good hour or so putting them together or merely just looking at each individual piece and allowing him to become creative in his own little way , he even builds little houses with them as the pieces are rather large and chunky and sturdy to hold.
The older children often whizz through these puzzles pretty fast so we try to hide away to allow him some time to learn for himself without them being there taking over as they normally would and once he has the idea and knows the puzzle he then brings in his older siblings to show them how clever he is putting it all together .
The floor puzzle is only a 24 piece in this case so I feel this is aimed more towards the younger children ages 3 to 7 , but the older children such as my 12 year old loves Puppy Dog Pals so really enjoyed this and actually requested we put it in a frame for her bedroom when we were finished with it .
This puzzle is so cheerful and bright that it fits well in our large family home and actually looks fun with a little resemblance of my own mischievous pups .
With Bingo and Rolly riding out with their Auto Doggie robotic friend , they look like they could be up to all sorts of adventures , but what are they going to get up to and where are they going?
It brings a great script of imagination to a child's mind once they complete the picture and see the final reveal and if you know anything about the two characters or even if you don't , you can see they are going to seek plenty of fun and thrills wherever they go .
The Ravensburger ' Puppy Dog Pals Giant Floor Puzzle' is a wonderful family puzzle that can be played with time over time and because its made with quality it will last those smaller hands longer .
What puzzle will we try next?
Come back and find out soon.
