"Puzzles support learning through playing"-

When I was a little girl, we used to visit my dad's sisters at their homes on Saturday afternoons. There together, we cousins played with puzzles and board games. Puzzles in particular seemed to me to be extremely complicated objects. I lost my patience and many times I got frustrated because I couldn't find pieces that fit between them. For many years I stopped putting together puzzles because that act that was supposed to be a moment of entertainment and "funny time/evenings” in my childhoods ended up developing in myself a lack of interest in this type of skills due to the teasing and all kinds of jokes that both, my cousins and relatives, made me.

“Puzzles support learning through playing; at the same time they make a positive contribution to the development of mental skills such as perception, recollection, resolution, making analysis, forming part-whole relationships, concentration and making observations. In addition, group work puzzles allow children to interact with each other and give them opportunities to do the puzzle cooperatively; thus puzzles provide important attainments for receptive and expressive language skills”. Arslan, F. (2000).

This puzzel was created with the support of Annantalo and Catalysti as part of the exhibition "My Childhod Memories".
