I love getting down on the floor and playing with the kids, as they get older I am needed in their little games less and less, they have such massive imaginations and can usually be found playing doctors, explorers, schools or mums and dads it is lovely to watch them playing together but it’s nice when I can get involved and do something with them.
Nowadays it is more tasks like baking or crafting that requires my help but just recently we were sent a lovely puzzle from Wentworth wooden puzzles, and that was the I Know My World Map Jigsaw.
An activity that brings us all together is always fine by me, something to get us away from screens and sitting, working together is lovely. Wentworth wooden puzzles are such great quality the wooden pieces don’t break under the slightest force from a heavy handed toddler. I love how unique they are with the different shapes, it gets children thinking differently and really engages them in the task at hand.
We opted for the 50 piece puzzle for my own sanity but it also available in a 100 or 250 pc if you and the children are up to the challenge.
Having a little bag to store the puzzle pieces in is a good send, any mother will tell you the cardboard boxes for puzzles get ruined, whether its a week or a month they just don’t last, but the draw string bag will keep it all together nicely.
I was so impressed to see how well the girls got on with the puzzle, I did help but it was perfect for Maisy and Bella’s age (4 & 5 years).
They were really pleases with themselves, and once the puzzle is finished its great to sit and talk about the world, show the girls where we live – Maisy didn’t believe me that the UK was that small on the map! There are lots of different things to talk about when looking at the map, from landmarks that are pictured, the flags round the outside to where we would like to go on holiday next.
I was really impressed with the quality and the detail that was included there was a couple of little points like the colosseum being no where near Greece which I figured could have been clearer but with my girls I made it more into a game of in which country would you find this one.
I also have one of these to give away! I think it’ll make a lovely little gift so if you would like to be in with the chance of winning it please enter below via the gleam widget.
UK only, good luck!
