The Living Puzzles
MetadataShow full item record
The living puzzles are three puzzles that were manufactured out of pictures that I personally have taken. I had my pictures manufactured into three different size puzzles with varying piece counts: one is 8 inches by 10 inches with six pieces, one is ten inches by twelve inches with twelve pieces, and one is eight and a quarter inches by eleven and three quarter inches with thirty pieces. Each puzzle has also been designed to incorporate various textures, depending upon the image that is presented. These Living Puzzles can be used to address many physical, cognitive, and psychosocial components through a variety of activities. They can be used in group settings, one on one, or individually to work on problem solving and tactile exposure and adaptation. The Living Puzzles can be used by anyone who is looking for tactile or cognitive exposure, but is designed with the pediatric area of practice in mind. It is my hope that the images on these puzzles provoke interest and excitement and that they are seen as fun activities that can also be used to address so many components.
