Well worry no longer we have some tips and great products that will make your puzzling joyful again.
Tip 1: Find some space
It’s not always easy to find the space that you need to piece together a beautiful jigsaw puzzle. You may have a spare dinning or coffee table when you start the jigsaw, but have you ever gotten halfway through only to have to break it all up because you need the space for something else? There are some great solutions out there, such as our Jigsaw Puzzle Roll Mat.
All you need to do is roll the jigsaw puzzle mat out into the space where you plan to piece your jigsaw together and get started. The jigsaw puzzle roll mat is made from felt so that your pieces will not slide around. When the space needs to be used for something else, simple blow up the inflatable tube and gently roll the mat and your puzzle around it, securing when finished with the two elasticated tabs. Then slide into the bag and simply store in a safe place until it’s time to start your jigsaw puzzle again.
Tip 2: Sorting
Whoever you ask for the key to successful puzzling, they’ll always say organisation is key. There are several ways to plan how you will piece together your jigsaw puzzle from starting with the edges, to separating out shapes or colours, but how does anyone do this when they puzzle in a multi-use space? With the use of accessories!

Tip 3: Getting passed a mental block
Sometimes you can feel stuck when piecing together your jigsaw puzzle and no matter how long you stare at your puzzle you just can’t find the missing piece. There are some very experienced puzzles out there who have wonderful suggestions on how you get passed that hurdle. One of those suggestions is to turn the puzzle upside down, looking at the shapes and tones instead of the image can be beneficial.
Another suggestion is sorting the pieces into the same shapes, such as all the pieces with three cut out parts and one sticking out bit are all together.
