The puzzles that give other puzzles puzzle envy (is there such a thing?)
One of my favorite pastimes with my kids has always been puzzles. I love the combination of relaxing and challenging. My son usually only lasts a quarter of the way through, but my daughter patiently works until the very last piece is placed. (I try to quit but she just won't let me.) So I am thrilled to find these gorgeous, handmade wooden puzzles that I think so many parents will love.
The wooden magnetic geography puzzles
by Steven Mattern Design
are cool to look at and so educational--what a great way to make geography more interactive than a plain map. Each one is created from a variety of woods, and the magnetization makes them easy to work with. (And hopefully harder to lose any pieces?)
A puzzle board & wall mount
are sold separately but seem like a smart addition. Plus each map comes with a map reference and is packaged in a pretty cotton drawstring bag.
