On Puzzles and Games
We bought a few new puzzles and games this year that are definite "wins" for us. While Mike and I were in bed with the flu, our kids spent several days putting together this 1000-piece puzzle. They loved it and couldn't wait for me to purchase more. We have since put together another one, and the we have begun the third. We set up a card table in our office and it is our designated puzzle spot for now. It is a wonderful way to promote team-work, problem solving and being "unplugged".
We also purchased two new games this Christmas that we are playing several times a week. Both are great purchases...especially Ticket to Ride. My 6 year old Will is obsessed with it! I love having a kid that loves board games so much and is always up for some friendly competition. These are so great for giving us fun and slow family time which can be hard to come by as schedules begin to busy again.
These have really blessed our family during chilly days and sick days. Anything that promotes slow living and togetherness is a thumbs-up for me.
