Jigsaws: (Adobe Reader 9 or above)
5 stunning jigsaws. 400 x 400, 16 pieces against the timer (2:30 minutes each).
Good for hand/eye coordination & fine motor skills.
Jigsaws have been packaged into an interactive pdf - please make sure you have Adobe Reader Version 9 or above.
Also included is an HTML version.
This version scatters pieces more, making it more challenging; however sometimes the pieces seem to be hidden behind the timer, so click reset before starting the puzzle to make sure you can see them all. (Double click the index.html file or drag it into the *browser's URL bar). These seem to work best in Firefox.
