Play Jigsaw Puzzles


Miaomiao has multiple toys at home including multiple jigsaw puzzles. I have bought many simple jigsaw puzzles with nine pieces, sixteen pieces, and twenty pieces for her. Sam also bought her a big jigsaw puzzle with 100 pieces. And My sister’s son Danny also gave her sevral big jigsaw puzzles once with 50 pieces and 200 pieces.
She liked to play those jigsaw puzzles about ten months ago and could accomplish the simple jigsaw puzzles all by herself at that time. But she gradually lost interests to play her jigsaw puzzles. Everytime when i asked her if she wanted to play her jigsaw puzzles, she said no.
Then i found our neighbour’s two years old son Tommy also started to play jigsaw puzzles these days. So when Miaomiao played in Tommy’s home the day before yesterday, i played jigsaw puzzles with Tommy while Miaomiao was playing Tommy’s building blocks. Miaomiao felt bored after playing by herself for a while and also started to play jigsaw puzzles with Tommy and i. She even grabed jigsaw pieces with Tommy after playing for a while. They both enjoyed playing jigsaw puzzles together.
So when we stayed at home yesterday, i asked her if she wanted to play her jigsaw puzzles, she said yes with delight. Then she accomplished one after another jigsaw puzzles on bed with me. She played so absorbed that she didn’t want to go to sleep even i found she actually was very sleepy. At last i asked her to sleep and then she could continue to play tomorrow. She agreed and fell into sleep immediately after lying on bed.
She wakes up early this morning and wants to play her jigsaw puzzles on bed. I persuade her to go out with me to have breakfast first and then she can play any jigsaw puzzles she wants. She agrees and we have our breakfast outside. As it’s still raining, we come back soon after finishing our breakfast. Miaomiao starts to play her jigsaw puzzles immediately after she arrives home.
I think her enthusiasm on jigsaw puzzles would last for a period this time. Playing jigsaw puzzles with friends can has more fun. It was that time’s experience that let her likes to play jigsaws again.
