Do you and your family like doing puzzles? We're exploring (my 2019 word!) a new one that I bought at a local art store over the holidays. I find that few things bring quiet and calm and focus like puzzles, but then we forget about them for a while. Yesterday the kids were kind of squirrely and unsettled in the evening so we broke out this puzzle and immediately the vibe went chill. Violet just got home from school and immediately sat down to work!
I love everything Mudpuppy makes and this puzzle is an awesome one -- plenty of individual cats with cute details for the kids to work on! I find great calm in flipping over and sorting pieces. As soon as I finish working today I can't wait to dive back in!
