Sometimes the simple things really are the best.
As part of our role as Bigjigs Play Patrol Agents, last week we were sent a wooden jigsaw puzzle and challenged to play with it together, as a family.
I can't tell you what a lovely half an hour we spent playing together, drinking hot chocolate and giggling, while the rain poured down outside. Not only was it amazing to watch Evie's mind ticking as she worked out what jigsaw piece went where, it was also utterly lovely to watch Daisy help her little sister when she got stuck.
There's a three year age gap between the girls and this particular jigsaw (the Number & Colour Matching Puzzle) was perfect for them both; Evie was able to match the colours, while Daisy practised her counting and matched the numbers.
There really is so much to be said for taking just a little time out and spending time together as a family.xoxo
One of the main reasons we love Bigjigs Toys so much is because it's a family operated business that has never lost sight of its roots. Their toys are excellent quality, safe and affordable, and encourage exploration, creativity and learning. Most importantly they are really great fun! We are honestly so thrilled to be part of the Play Patrol team.
