Did you know that 29th of January is National Puzzle Day?
Puzzles could include crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, Sudoku, riddles or brain-teasers.
Scientists have learned that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, which can improve our memory and problem solving skills.
Activities you could try today to celebrate National Puzzle Day:
- Complete a jigsaw puzzle. If you don’t have any at home you could do an online jigsaw puzzle e.g at https://www.jigsawexplorer.com/
2. Do a Sudoku.
This powerpoint explains how to solve a Sudoku and gives you one to solve.
3. Solve a riddle.
