Santa's Pets 60 Piece Sequenced Jigsaw Puzzle

100% of 100

The snow doesn't bother these puppies and kittens as Father Christmas tells them a story. A lovely image that brings back memories of Christmases past and family pets.

This 60 piece puzzle designed for people with Alzheimer's and dementia makes a great individual or small group activity. The pieces are large enough and thick enough to be easy to handle, but not so large that they don't look like jigsaw puzzle pieces. Even though 60 pieces may seem like a lot for someone with dementia or Alzheimer's, by using our unique color-coded sequencing and templates you can present the activity with a level of challenge that's just right to enable the person to complete the puzzle successfully. What a great feeling of satisfaction and pride!

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 and templates guide person to success
  • Pieces are divided into eight groupings to adjust level of difficulty
  • Ideal for one to four participants

The secret to the puzzle is the color coding. The puzzle has been divided into eight color coded "sections". The pieces come presorted into color coded bags according to their placement on the puzzle. Each piece has a corresponding colored dot on the back. Since almost every puzzle lover starts with the border, the first four sections are the left, top, right and bottom border pieces. The next four are the inside portions of the puzzle, divided into four manageable sections. There is a template showing the outline of the pieces for each section to provide further guidance if necessary.

By presenting only one set of pieces to the person at a time and using the templates, the person is guided to successfully place the pieces on their own, giving them a great feeling of accomplishment and pride (usually accompanied by a big smile). As they become more proficient, more than one bag of pieces can be offered to add challenge.

In a small group setting, each person in the group can work on a different section of the puzzle, putting it all together when all the sections are complete.

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. Makes a great small group activity for up to four participants.

  • 60 piece sequenced puzzle (19" x 12.5" completed)
  • Pieces color coded and pre-sorted into 8 bags
  • Laminated full color picture of completed puzzle
