Today is National Puzzle Day, a fantastic time for families to sit down and enjoy a large jigsaw together or children trying to do a puzzle of their favourite characters by themselves.
I’ve always been a fan of jigsaws and have my encouraged my children to do so too. Jumbo Games have a wide variety of puzzles available for all ages and tastes so there really is something to suit everyone.
The Frozen wall puzzle is not only a jigsaw, but once complete it comes with glue to which you spread on top to join all the pieces together. You can then hang the puzzle on your bedroom wall. The other special thing about this puzzle is the size. It may only contain 35 pieces but the completed puzzle is an awesome 100x70cm!!
For your chance to win this fabulous Giant Wall puzzle, just enter in the Gleam form below:
They test your patience!
I love seeing the final result,i used to spend hours doing them as a child!
I love the fact that everyone in the family can join in and a puzzle isn’t completed straight away – it takes time and patience!

The Brain is a muscle, puzzles are perfect to give the brain a good workout 🙂

They encourage us to use our brain and are a fab way to get quality family time with the kids
I love the way they get the brain working
The simplicity and nostalgia from doing puzzles with my grandparents as a little girl. There is no waiting for them to load or lost internet connection. Its great in such a fast paced world to just unwind with a puzzle.
