Jigsaw Puzzles Help Settle The Mind

While not medicaly documented, Jigsaw puzzles are commonly used by institutions and individuals to help find a balance in their mind and bring a sense of control to a brain that may be overworked or damaged.

Many mental health institutions have been using them for decades as a means to help patients improve their mental fitness and promote concentration. Individuals have successfully used them as distraction and relaxing method to forget, at least temporarily, about the life problems surrounding them. Some hospitals have even found them successful at providing temporary pain relief.

The mind is an amazing thing and jigsaw puzzles seem to provide the temporary relief to many of  life’s problems. The young and the old can also benefit from the improvement in mental prowess that most believe come from Jigsaw Puzzles.

Truancy Judge Sentences Kids to Doing Jigsaw Puzzles with Parents

A Texas judge is taking a new approach to punishing kids who do not attend school regularly. Judge John Sholden is sentencing kids to a fine, and to complete a 1,000 piece jigsaw puzzle with their parents. The reason for the jigsaw puzzle punishment, to force kids and parents to spend some quite time together where they work together and most importantly spend time talking. The hope is that this forced time together will force the kids to discuss issues and problems with their parents in a relaxed and positive setting.

“The rules are a parent can’t put in a puzzle piece without the child being present, and the child can’t put in a piece without the parent being present,” said Sholden.

As a tribute to the success and commitment to the program the judge has dozens of the completed jigsaw puzzles put together under this project lining his office walls. A tribute to this unique but promising and well intentioned program.

Legends Of The Silver Screen Puzzles

Being a huge classic movies buff, my favorite jigsaw puzzles are those from the Legends of the Silver Screen series. Made by the MasterPieces Puzzle Company, these 750 piece puzzles feature the famous like of James Dean, Humphry Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, and Elvis.

These puzzles retail for about about $16.99 each and I usualy have all of them in available for purchase in my ebay store games2puzzles. Below you will find pictures of some of my favorite from this series:

4 of a Kind

James Dean, Humphry Bogart playing poker while Marilyn Monroe distracts Elvis by showing a little leg. It looks like they are playing in some kind of private suite or in a lounge.

 

Midnight Matinee

This puzzle is probably my favorite with Elvis and Marilyn making out in a phone booth and James Dean looking on… Humphry Bogart is oddly standing looking out at the street. The group are in front of a Movie theater backdrop.
