Puzzle skillz

I ain't gonna lie, our kids have mad puzzle skillz. When Aubrey was only 2, she did a 100 piece puzzle completely by herself. It was incredible! She has always loved puzzles. Ella shares that love as well and the past couple of months has been spending hours upon hours putting together puzzles. She completed a huge 300 piece puzzle the other day with no help at all. She is only 5 and it probably took her an hour or two if that. Crazy! She never tires of it. Our floors have been covered in puzzles lately. I love how much my kids love puzzles. Its something that keeps them busy, something that makes their little minds work, and most of all, something that keeps them quiet:) Haha.

Ella and the 300 piecer
Now, to train Cali in the art of puzzlery....

Great Job Ella, I am going to have to try that with Callie. She loved puzzles when she was younger, but I haven't tried 300 piece one yet.

wow that's impressive Ella! I am in awe of you! I love puzzles too, but haven't done in a very long time! I need to get with the program!

That particular puzzle is not the easiest to do, either. Way to go, Ella! Impressive; we should totally have a puzzle match off. No, maybe not- you'd probably beat me. :)

I'm impressed. And I can't even begin to tell you how much I love it when my kids do puzzles--it's the whole quiet thing, nothing beats that!

way to go Ella! Jace loves doing puzzles too.

Elena said...

Wow! I am so NOT a puzzle person. I honestly have a hard time just putting together those little kid board puzzles. Wish I had some of your daughter's skills!

Wow Ella...that is amazing!!!! I am so impressed. My mom and brother were big puzzle fans but somehow the love of puzzles didn't trickle down to me. I get frustrated when I can't find the right piece right away.... maybe I should take lessons from Ella.

How are you doing Holly. I think of you often. I am sending love to all. have a great week. Love, Lura
