Sometimes there's no substitute for an old-fashioned jigsaw puzzle. Some people like to look at the completed image only once. I really like to sort the colors and start with the corners. What's your approach to assembling a puzzle? Do you invite others to join you?
We just finished a 300 piece puzzle ... on our kitchen counter! The height was perfect & standing gave a better view of the entire expanse of pieces. Maybe burned a few calories standing rather than sitting?
We do puzzles weekly. We start with the edges then my boyfriend usually starts with the top and I do the bottom most of the time. He will separate the colors or a theme going on in the puzzle. We finished a wooden puzzle recently. Boy was that interesting. The right piece just drops in. Many different shapes it was really challenging.
I love puzzles. I buy the puzzle based on the theme of the room in my house. Begin with the edges and then with specific objects with the puzzle. Once completed, I glue the puzzle back and front, get the puzzle professionally framed and hang it on the wall.
My husband and I finished two weeks or so ago, that was a complete puzzler as the shapes were unusual but the Yellowstone morning glory pool was beautiful upon completion. I'm losing my eyesight so this helps with challenging me to place items the first time.
@AARPLynne I love jigsaw puzzles. However, have not been able to do them in a long time. My cats think they are toys. 😼 Would love to still do them again. They are even fun to do multiple times. With the advent of online puzzles, I can still do them occasionally here on AARP.
