One of my favourite things to do on a winter evening
is putting a puzzle together.
So it comes as no surprise
that I also enjoy doing puzzles with my grandchildren.
As Kai and I worked on his new Pokemon puzzle together after Christmas
I was reminded again of something I had noticed when doing puzzles with other grandchildren....
...whereas adults always start with the edge pizzas to outline the puzzle to begin with,
children don't do that.
Not only that, it makes no sense to them at all.
They just start with colours and shapes,
in this case Kai started with one Pokemon character at a time,
and cheered with each one that he put together.
And guess what?
They get the puzzles together just the same!
Even without starting with the edge pieces first...
