National Puzzle Day is Friday, January 29. In 2021, everyone is honoring the 25th year celebrating puzzle fun! There are so many puzzles to choose from: word search games, jigsaw puzzle, Rubik’s Cube, Sudoku, crossword puzzles and others. Puzzles and games are perfect to pass the time and is a great family activity. Educators also use puzzles in classrooms for student learning. It’s no surprise humans have consumed more puzzles over the past 12 months than in a very long time. Everyone has stayed at home due to the current world health situation and puzzles are the perfect activity!
National Puzzle Day continues to encourage the celebration of puzzles and games on this special day. The holiday started years ago with an invite to classrooms to share puzzles. Kids were encouraged to send a self-addressed stamped envelope to get a free puzzle mailed to them directly. The free puzzles were moved online so people around the world could participate. In 2021, the celebration of National Puzzle Day continues with more free puzzles than ever! Classes, libraries, magazines, schools, families, and kids are ready to break out their favorite puzzles to play. Even adults can enjoy a puzzle or two!
“It’s amazing to see how puzzles are being honored this year,” said National Puzzle Day founder Jodi Jill. “From the Huron, Ohio Library who will be offering free puzzles for patrons to do a curbside pick up to a zoom puzzle fest in Honolulu put together by a senior group, there are going to be puzzles everywhere. We are all celebrating puzzles.”
