The hooligans got a couple of puzzles for Christmas. My first reaction was, "uh oh", but we decided to give it a shot. I loved puzzles growing up, and I know it's good for them to do. So I swallowed my OCD and we got to work.
They had a great time, and were actually better at it than I expected. Merrick found a couple of the pieces himself, and amazingly didn't destroy the puzzle or anything else.
Minnie Mouse (aka Tirzah...yes, they do puzzles in costume) did have one costume related meltdown. She had to completely strip down before she was able to move on and help finish the puzzle. Not sure what the problem was...I think something was making her itch, but we may never know. The meltdown is not pictured...it wasn't pretty, and I'm sure she wouldn't appreciate those shots in the future.
I think there should be more puzzles in their future. If for no other reason than it made them sit still on one part of the house for longer than 3 seconds. That doesn't happen every day...or any day actually.
