A puzzle is a great way to spend a day! Or a rainy afternoon! Or a second or two before the baby wakes up! The great thing about puzzles is you don't have to do it all at once!
Once it IS together though you can glue and hang it, commemorating your accomplishment, appreciating a beautiful piece of art or destroy it, with glee, banishing it to it's box once more to wait for another rainy day, quiet moment, or whatever kind of situation inspires you to rebuild it.
What really makes a puzzle important is the time you spend putting it together but starting with a great picture never hurts either. For the little ones try some puppies and kittens. For the angsty teen, an Edward Gorey illustration, for the world traveler, a beautiful representation of Big Ben! The beauty of puzzles is there's one for everyone.
