I did my usual sorting routine.

  1. Sorting to locate all  the outside border pieces, while....
  2. Placing the pieces into the 'general-color' piles. 
  3. Then I carried on with a second round of sorting (similar colors sorted by shades/patterns) while placing the pieces flat out on the poster boards. 

The border was quick and easy. The pieces seemed of medium quality so not bad. I did the bottom words which were really easy too. Then I worked all the toys under the tree leaving the tree, lights and popcorn garland for last.


I thought this I-Spy jigsaw puzzle would be really quick because it said ages 7+ but I think some of the colors were somewhat 'muted' making it a tad tricky. As I assembled this puzzle I kept wondering how a 7 year old would do with it. 

This one was brand new for $2.00 still sealed in the box and I did enjoy doing it for the Christmas season. I tried to find the riddle solution online but no luck there - I am not good at riddles either ;)
