Besides being fun, puzzles are an often overlooked educational tool. I’ve used puzzles to teach my children about the world. I also love using 4D Cityscape Time puzzles in our history lessons, as they allow children to see how historical events shape cities and countries.
I believe in hands on learning wherever possible, in all school subjects. So when I was offered the chance to review three new Dr. Livingston human body jumbo learning puzzles, I said yes. I knew these puzzles would be fantastic for teaching my children about the human body.

What to Include in a Broken Bone Care Package
Broken bones are painful, and then the healing process takes so long! A carefully put together care package can really cheer up a patient! Here are some fun ideas of what to include.
Broken bones often limit movement, and puzzles take the edge off of that a little bit. I’m partial to Ravensburger puzzles, but 4D puzzles and 3D puzzles are also a lot of fun. My children are partial to Harry Potter puzzles!
You might also consider diamond painting, which is like a crafty version of a puzzle.
Broken bones are so frustrating! Fidget toys help with the frustration. They can also help with improved mobility if you are recovering from a broken hand. I speak from experience!
Don’t forget old-fashioned fidget toys, like Jacob’s Ladder.
A Fun Game
A Favorite Treat
Humans love food, and a carefully chosen treat can really cheer someone up!
This can be a Spotify play list you created just for them, an iTunes gift card, or even a record – now that vinyl is making a comeback!
A Good Book

Laughter really is the best medicine! Throw in a silly joke book, or just draw a goofy card. Thankfully you don’t need to be an artist to make someone laugh – stick figures and speech bubbles are incredibly effective!
