North American Birds 35 Piece Sequenced Jigsaw Puzzle

100% of 100

A kingfisher, a pelican, a Canada goose and even a bald eagle - something for the bird lover in us all. This puzzle features a variety of colourful birds in a marsh setting.

Using our unique sequencing guidance, even people with dementia or Alzheimer's who find puzzles too challenging can often complete these puzzles successfully. Use the laminated discussion guide to help you lead a fun and interesting discussion once the puzzle is complete.

You may see other puzzles with this image, but only the Keeping Busy Sequenced Puzzle is color coded and designed for people with dementia and Alzheimer's.

  • Cognitive challenge
  • Color coding guides person to success
  • Pieces are divided into six groupings to adjust level of difficulty
  • Discussion guide helps lead conversation

The puzzle is a brightly colored 35 piece tray puzzle with pieces large and thick enough to be easy to handle but not so large that they don't look like jigsaw pieces. The pieces fit together in a tray that has a grey image of the puzzle printed on it and each piece outlined to show its placement, but the real magic is in the color sequencing.

The puzzle pieces come pre-sorted into groups according to their placement on the puzzle – top, side, bottom, etc. Each group of pieces is presented to the person individually. By following the colored clues on the tray and the sequence of steps in the instructions, the person is guided to successfully place the pieces without help. This is repeated for each group until the puzzle is complete. Because the person is generally able to select and place the pieces on their own, they have a great feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment (often accompanied by a big smile).

As the person becomes more proficient, more than one group can be presented at once, making the activity more challenging.

Included in the package is a laminated sheet showing the finished puzzle in full color to use as a guide. Also included is a key guide that can be used to lead a conversation about the completed puzzle. Not only are these puzzles colorful and fun to do, they are great conversation starters when selected to match the interests of the person.

Suitable For:

A great activity for people with dementia or Alzheimer's who always liked jigsaw puzzles but now find standard puzzles too challenging. Also great for people with more abilities looking for a new and fun pastime.

Package Includes:
  • 35 piece sequenced puzzle (14" x 10" completed)
  • Pieces color coded and pre-sorted into 6 bags
  • Laminated full color picture of completed puzzle
  • Discussion guide
  • Full instructions
  • Packaged in convenient zippered envelope
