Afternoon at the Zoo 60 Piece Sequenced Jigsaw Puzzle

Everyone loves a visit to the zoo, and this brightly coloured, fun puzzle can bring back many happy memories. and offer lots to talk about. Hopefully the reptiles didn’t escape the afternoon you visited the zoo, as they did in this image.

This 60 piece puzzle designed for people with dementia or Alzheimer's 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!

The secret to the puzzle is the color coding. 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. The puzzle has been divided into eight color coded "sections". 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.

Package Includes: 60 piece sequenced puzzle measuring 19" x 12.5" when complete with pieces color coded and presorted into color coded bags, laminated full color picture showing completed puzzle, four laminated templates for each puzzle section and full instructions conveniently packaged in a zippered envelope.

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.
