Spend quality time with your child by working a jigsaw puzzle together! Set the time aside all at once or keep it going over a few days.

Whether you finish in 1 day or leave it out over multiple and sit down together for 15 minutes at a time, puzzles are a great way to spend one on one quality time with your child.

Take the quiet opportunity to talk or have your child put on background music they enjoy. Ask why they picked that song or what they like about the puzzle.

When the puzzle is complete, use super glue to glue it together and frame it! keep the memory of that time you had together.
