21st August 2018The year so far - UK Minister for Jigsaws

The year so far - UK Minister for Jigsaws

Our 2018 UK Minister for Jigsaws, Francesca Collis, has been sharing with us what she’s been up to all in the name of promoting jigsaws far and wide.

She often shares her adventures via Facebook and Twitter, with some great images of her friends and family completing a Wentworth Puzzle or two. She runs a competition where all guests have to complete a micro puzzle against the clock. It appears that they really do ‘have to’ complete a micro puzzle. As she finds many people say they’re not that into jigsaw puzzles and then after the experience they start to love them as much as Francesca.

15th May 2018Using jigsaw puzzles to keep the mind active

Using jigsaw puzzles to keep the mind active

Any social interaction or brain stimulation as you get older is important. Keeping as active as possible – both mentally and socially, as well as physically – can boost memory and self esteem, and help to avoid depression. Jigsaws can be ideal for that. For people with short-term memory problems, who might once have taken their stimulation from reading, books can become too complicated as they get older as they struggle to remember what they have already read. But a jigsaw is something that you can come back to and quite literally pick up the pieces from where you left off.

20th February 2018The puzzle of what your Mum would really like on Mother’s Day!

The puzzle of what your Mum would really like on Mother’s Day!

If she doesn’t still, she probably used run around trying to make sure everyone was happy, had what they needed, when they needed it, and probably didn’t really think too much about her own ‘wants’. So the prefect Mother’s Day gift would be to let her indulge in those ‘wants’ so she can spend her own time doing what she enjoys the most. It could just be doing jobs around the house she usually does so she has the time to spend on herself. Such as letting her find a cosy corner and giving her a book you know she’ll love to escape in, uninterrupted. Or spoil her with a gardening course if she loves getting out in the garden

17th January 2018Indulge yourself with a challenging jigsaw puzzle and you’ll enjoy the winter months

Indulge yourself with a challenging jigsaw puzzle and you’ll enjoy the winter months

When initially investigating our January blog about how to survive the long cold winter months, all we could think about were the negatives of winter, the cold long, dark winter. Then we spoke to some of our avid puzzlers and we realised we were asking the wrong question. It’s not about how to survive the winter, it’s about celebrating what winter can bring to you, your home and your friends and family.
