Puzzle Mania


Yesterday when I dug several puzzles out of a grab bag at our Co-op he was overjoyed.

He spent the evening working on one of them.

He's really quite good at building them.

He loves figuring them out!! 

He is very capable of doing 100+ puzzles except the pieces are too small and he ends up having us build while he directs the process. That's not much fun. So we are forever trying to find puzzles with pieces that are easy for his hands to work.

Considering that Aaron had never built a puzzle before we met him...

I think he has come a long way....

What do you think???


  1. You know...he pretty much amazes me!


  2. I don't know what puzzle brands you can find where you live, but I know that Ravensburger makes puzzles with 200 pieces, where the pieces are the size of those he has in those pictures.

    He is amazing - and he looks so proud!

  3. Wow! He is doing amazingly!

    Someone needs to take puzzles to the boys in the institutions...

  4. He does better with them than I do and I'm 21 years old and have had access to them my entire life.

  5. Little boy wonder is at it again... Your son truly is an inspiration!

  6. Brilliant! Well done Aaron. He has come such a long way with his loving, steady, and encouraging brothers and parents. I love this blog, it is so uplifting. Thanks Julia.

  7. He just shows everyone that you don't have to look perfect to be a perfect creation from God. He will use his mind in ways others will admire and THAT is what matters!

  8. There are quite a few large piece puzzle makers. Here is one especially for kids. If you pick one or two you think he would like, we could search for it on ebay and find it cheaper. Or, if you could give me a mailing address, I'd like to send him a present from Philly.


  9. Here is a place that sells large piece children's puzzles.

    If it's possible to have a mailing address or po box, I'd like to send him a present from Philly.



Loving words from kind people make our hearts glad!
