I love it when my grandson shares his knowledge with me. It tickles me when he knows something that I don’t. That’s exactly what happened last week when my grandson asked if he could play games on the computer. He’s only five. In the past, playing games meant playing Transformer games or playing games we knew on the PBS Web site. This time it was different.
The game that Patrick wanted to play was putting puzzles together. He has been putting puzzles together in the computer lab at school. He even knew the address for the site he wanted. It’s located at http://www.jigzonepuzzles.com/. It’s a great site. It provides puzzles for kids of all ages.
Both kids and adults can choose the puzzle they want to work on from an assortment of different themes. They can decide how many pieces they want to work with, and they can even choose the shapes of the puzzle pieces.
Patrick has been putting puzzles together and keeping track of the amount of time it takes him to complete his task. He loves the feeling of accomplishment. I like the fact that this site is educational. I also like the fact that I don’t have to monitor what he is looking at or visit the site before he logs in.
Who knows, you may have to visit the site when the kids aren’t home just so you won’t have to fight them for a turn. Take a minute to visit the site for yourself. If you do, I think you will be as impressed as I am.
