Your grandchildren are coming to visit for the holidays, and you need a way to keep everyone entertained on rainy days. From simple three-piece shapes depicting farmyard animals to complex number games, there are numerous types of puzzles to challenge and entertain kids and adults. Playing with puzzles offers several benefits for people throughout their lives. For young children, jigsaw puzzles help with developing their hand-eye coordination as they maneuver each colorful piece until it fits into a bigger picture. Older children improve their emotional and problem-solving skills as they learn that they need patience to work toward the right solution for logic and 3D puzzles. Sudoku and crosswords puzzles keep brains limber all the way into old age. You can find a vast range of puzzles of all kinds on eBay, and if you are creative, there are also puzzle makers so that you can put the family at the heart of your games. Take a photo, attach it to a self-adhesive board, and cut out the pieces to create a unique puzzle.
