Puzzles, those games that can test some people's patience, are primarily known as a great way to reduce stress and to relax. Whether you are young or old, there is always a puzzle to suit everyone.
A familiy activity
Puzzles are accessible to children and adults, therefore it’s an activity that can easily be done with the whole family. Everyone can have their own task: the little ones put aside the edges, the older ones sort the pieces by color shades, and we try to find the right pieces all together.
The history of the puzzle
The first puzzles were created in London around 1760 with the aim of learning the geography of countries. The idea came from John Spilsbury, a London cartographer and engraver who came up with the idea of cutting out maps representing different countries of the world and selling them as a fun way to learn geography.
The benefits of the puzzle
In addition to having great educational virtues, the puzzle helps to fight against memory loss and to exercise one's cognitive abilities. It also allows one to relax.
