[Mostly] Wordless Wednesday


L.(5) is a bit of a puzzler. He gets a magazine from Highlights called Puzzle Buzz and is always so very excited when the newest issue arrives. He particularly loves the hidden picture puzzles, and will often curl up next to me on the couch so we can do them together. But just as often, I’ll find him hidden away somewhere in the house, carefully studying the pages and solving the puzzles. With a mom (and a grandmother or two) who are also big fans of puzzles, I guess it’s to be expected.

I love coming across these quiet moments of concentration.

  1. I remember loving Highlights magazine as a child. I will have to get that for my daughter soon :)

  2. Encourage that as much as possible. We need great thinkers in this world!

    Happy Wordless Wednesday!

  3. I love when kids do stuff like this.
    I know this magazine.
    D received one once and loved it. I really want to get another one for him!

  4. Love it! Sammy loves to do these as well!

  5. My son grabs his Chickadee magazine as soon as it comes (our Highlights equivalent) and does the same thing. Totally skips the stories and goes right for the puzzles! And lame jokes. :)

  6. I remember those days long since past now.

  7. I have a feeling our boys would get along VERY well.

  8. This makes me smile (: I love nothing better than to curl up on the couch with my daughter(8), each of us reading our own books taking breaks to talk about what we’ve read. But like you, I like to come across those quiet moments when she’s by herself so engrossed in her book that she doesn’t even know I’m there. Makes me very happy and very proud!

  13. My kids like the sticker puzzles. So fun.

  14. My kids love Puzzle Buzz – just as my older one started to outgrow it, the younger one was just able to do some of the sticker pages. Now at 5 he’s a pro and can do a lot of it on his own (and he’s also discovered that there’s an answer key in the back!) The 2 most recent issues kept him occupied during his big brother’s basketball practice.
