I grew up in a family of six children, and my parents did so much to create family holiday traditions we’d look forward to and enjoy together. I remember turning into a teenager and thinking about how our family was growing up, and many of the traditions we did were evolving. My dad used to take us all swimming at the recreation center to wear us out so we’d sleep. But as we became older, my mom no longer wanted us out of the house. She wanted us in the house ready to help with food prep or errands.
Christmas Jigsaw Puzzle Tradition
We needed something that we could all do together, but easily get pulled away from to complete a holiday task. And one year, my mom got the brilliant idea to buy a jigsaw puzzle. A 1000 piece Christmas puzzle was the perfect thing! We loved it so much, we finished it in a day!
When my parents realized how much sibling bonding time had occurred, they were ready to make this a permanent thing! My dad ran us to the store to pick up a few more. And the rest is history! Christmas jigsaws, or just jigsaw puzzles in general, became a holiday tradition I still smile remembering fondly from my teen and college years.
Why We Love A 300 Piece Christmas Puzzle
We have learned this isn’t only the perfect holiday tradition for teenagers, Christmas puzzles make a great date night, a fun family puzzle night, or a puzzle party with friends. Even our young kids could help with parts of a 300 piece Christmas puzzle.
I’m so grateful in a year that we’re spending more time at home than we usually do, that I found a darling Christmas puzzle. Truly you can enjoy any jigsaw puzzle. But there’s something a little extra magical about a jigsaw puzzle that comes together into a magical Christmas scene! And this one with kids about the ages of my two kids just felt perfect this year!
Excellent and Affordable Christmas Puzzles
If you could use some extra family fun this Christmas season, I’d highly recommend grabbing a Christmas puzzle to enjoy together. It just may create some of those forever Christmas memories, and give your entire family something they can all enjoy doing together!
