Visual puzzles are great for grandparents and grandchildren. Why not use them to help the two groups bond?
Visual puzzles can play an important role in keeping our brains active. With digital media available to us, we don't have to solve 1000-piece jigsaw puzzles to reap the same benefits. Whether you're looking for puzzles for children or for adults, they are great to exercise your cognitive skills. Puzzles have apparently been in existence in different forms since ancient times. Puzzle jugs date to the 1700 BCE in Cyprus, and magic squares were introduced in China around 700 BCE, they are also mentioned in the Bible, as per the GoodNet.
Jigsaw puzzles were invented by John Spilsbury in 1767, while crossword puzzles were first published in 1913, and the Rubik's Cube was created in 1974. Since then, there have been many variations of puzzles, and each of them might appeal to a different set of people. From what we know about them, they are good for exercising both sides of our brain, the logical and the creative, making it a complete mental workout.
They also enhance our memory by reinforcing the different connections between the cells. Puzzles also force us to remember shapes and colors, and visualize pieces. They can help senior adults keep their cognitive skills up and running, apart from teaching children the same things. It can be a great way for grandparents and grandchildren to bond.
