MERCURY: 100 PIECE PUZZLE

Published by: Chronicle Kids
I love puzzles and even though it is only a 100-piece puzzle, I loved putting it together. As a child, I basically grew up an only child since my sisters were married and out of the house by the time I was 4. Puzzles are one of those activities, like reading, that I could do to entertain myself. Puzzles still bring me joy, but I’m just doing puzzles with more pieces nowadays.
I had never realized how gorgeous the planet Mercury is. The blues, yellows, greens, and purples create a kaleidoscope of color. Fans of space or science will enjoy and marvel at the beauty of this planet.
This is a larger-sized floor puzzle, measuring 2.5 feet in diameter. Yes, it is a circular puzzle, which was unique and made it more of a challenge. Even though this is only 100 pieces, the similar colors and round shape made it challenging. I’m not ashamed to say it took me 1 1/2 hours to put it together by myself…with a few distractions.
This is definitely a puzzle the whole family could put together and may help with younger kids who might get frustrated by the difficulty level. If your family likes puzzles, NASA, or Outerspace, I would recommend this for your next family puzzle night.
