What is National Puzzle Day?

On January 29, National Puzzle Day is being held across the globe and it is also the perfect day to do a little brain exercise. Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, or Sudoku, puzzles engage our brain in more ways than one. Scientists have shown that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we utilize both sides of our brain, it improves our memory, cognitive function, and problem-solving skills in the process. By utilizing puzzle games, we get to learn a couple of skills. A puzzle is a problem or enigma that tests the ingenuity of the solver. In a basic puzzle, one is intended to put together pieces in a logical way in order to come up with the desired solution.

The first jigsaw puzzle was created around 1760 when John Spilsbury mounted a map on a sheet of wood that he then sawed around each individual country. Spilsbury used this outcome to aid in teaching geography. By the early 20th century, journals and newspapers found that they could enhance their daily subscriptions by publishing puzzle contests. Puzzles may also include words, numbers, patterns, and riddles.

As a syndicated newspaper puzzle maker and professional quiz maker, Jodi Jill developed classroom lesson plans especially for National Puzzle Day and it has been popular since then.
