Get Your Scrolling Finger Ready

My kids love puzzles, especially Binny. This is a new puzzle from Grandma N. It's a drink coaster, hot pad... I guess I'm not sure what it is. The backing is some sort of rubber-ish material with heavy fabric and a company logo on the front. It looks like it would have an actual purpose, but I guess I don't know that much about advertising.
Besides being a really fun puzzle, all of the pieces are attached, so we don't lose any! A bit of a mind bender too, but after putting it together only a few times, she's got it figured out.
Puzzlin' start to finish in 13 photos:















Oh duh! It's a mouse pad. I have never used one so I guess I just erased that 1990s office essential from my cluttered mind. What can I say, It's Monday morning. We had a full but very fun weekend! We made a visit to a friend's new house, went ice fishing, had a fun time with the grandparents, ate lots of great food... and puzzled of course.

Princess loves puzzles, too. This looks like a cool one! And as usual Aliceson, your photos are awesome. Love the tongue out thoughtful shots!

Great pics! Such intense concentration...

I am a puzzle geek. A few months ago I found a website that has jigsaws you can do online-- that combined with blogging has nearly ceased all dissertation writing in the last two months.

Sounds like a fun weekend!

So, there were no shrieks of frustration? No stomping? No shaking a tiny fist at the heavens?

My kid may be a tad high strung.

What a cute puzzle idea...so no pieces are loose? At least you will never loose any! Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

She is so cute on the picture where she sticks out her tongue a little. Adorable.

That's a great idea...not the mousepad, but the fact that all the puzzle pieces are attached. I don't know how many puzzles we have that are missing a piece or two.

I love her tongue sticking out in concentration. I do that when I'm sewing. LOL
