National Puzzle Day

January 29, 2022

Saturday, January 29 

Puzzles and board games strengthen your child’s critical thinking skills. Today we’ll exercise our brains as we problem solve and have fun through these interactive activities. You’re the missing piece…we need you to complete our puzzle!  

Purpose Behind the Play: Fine motor and dexterity practice, gross motor development, critical thinking, problem-solving

Smart Art (on-going):        

  • Loose Puzzle Parts for Art!> Little artists are encouraged to create with loose puzzle pieces, colored glue, and other loose parts! 
  • Wearable Art> Come make something you can wear – around your wrist, your ankle, your finger – with puzzle pieces and threading materials! 

Sensational Storytime (11 AM & 2:30 PM): Push Puzzles in the Woods> A hands-on, puzzle, board book story, all about the animals in the woods. 

Math, Music, & Movement (all day in the Traveling Exhibit Space): We’ll have an assortment of puzzles for your little to contribute, collaborate, and complete while moving and grooving to an assortment of music!

Grown-up Tip: Puzzles are fun for all ages! Not only do puzzles present skills to strengthen cognitive and fine-motor skills, the precious time you spend with your little one strengthens your bond as well. The next time you sit to do a puzzle with your child, take a moment to feel your hearts and your minds grow!
