Puzzle Together: Puzzles Are More Fun With Friends

A jigsaw activity might not be the first thing that comes to mind when coordinating a group event or planning a night with company, but it’s worth considering. There are tons of ways in which working on a jigsaw puzzle benefits the puzzler. Putting puzzles together with friends is one of them. 

Unique Quality Time

Working together on a jigsaw puzzle allows you to spend quality time together and enhance communication. Whether you see each other every day or haven’t gotten together in ages, a puzzle is a great way to catch up with one another and simultaneously strengthen your communication skills. Even amidst sharing the tea, jigsaws help you tap into your ability to cooperate and work with others. 

A Puzzling Start

Not sure where to begin? It’s as simple as inviting your bestie over for a night in, turning on some tunes, pouring yourselves a drink, and chatting while you decompress with a puzzle. It’s a perfect way to spend time together without the fast-paced nature that often accompanies day-to-day life. You’ll naturally gravitate towards piecing together the jigsaw as you enjoy each other's company. Plus, it helps stave off boredom if there is a lull in the conversation.

Together Time Puzzle Night (or Day)

Puzzles are a fantastic way to unwind after a long day or week and working on a jigsaw puzzle benefits the entire group. No, it’s not just a solo or dual activity. If you want to have a few people over, why not kick it up a notch with a puzzle party? It can be as formal or informal as you’d like. You never know - an impromptu puzzle night might just become a dedicated group activity you add to the calendar. 

Other Benefits of Jigsaw Puzzles

Bonding together and problem-solving as a group are just a few of the ways a puzzle activity is beneficial. Jigsaw activities aren’t just a form of entertainment. They’re also good for your mental health, cognitive development, memory retention, and much more. Plus, it's cheaper than a night out on the town. 🍻
