USA Jigsaw Puzzles

Updated on October 6, 2014

American Jigsaw Puzzles

Jigsaw puzzles are educational in and of themselves and when their subject matter is also educational, then you have a truly excellent way for one to spend leisure time. Many functions of the brain are utilized in solved a jigsaw puzzle and of course when the puzzles are all about US Geography, then that knowledge is acquired as well.

I have found a variety of USA jigsaw puzzles for your enjoyment. Some I own, the rest I would like to own! They range from easy ones for preschoolers to 1000 piece ones. Some are maps, some feature famous landmarks. Some are standard flat rectangular jigsaws, some are shaped and a few are even 3D.

I hope you will enjoy browsing this selection and will find something for you and your family to enjoy - or to give as a gift.

Wooden Puzzles

Perfect for little hands, wooden jigsaw puzzles are sturdier and less likely to break.

More USA Jigsaws for the younger set

Foam pieces or extra large pieces are also great for preschoolers. And puzzles in a book are great for car trips or for times when younger kids need to do a quiet activity.

Jigsaw books are great as kids can do them on their laps in a car or sitting on a chair in an airport, waiting room etc. We used them a lot when our kids were young

Make Puzzles once and glue them? - Or break 'em up for another day?

So - once you have completed a jigsaw puzzle do you think you should carefully glue the pieces to a board and frame it and preserve your hard work

OR

Should you look at it for a few days - then break it up so you can remake it in the future?

Glue and preserve it?

Glue and preserve it?

      I definitely preserve them; even if I don't hang all of them. Some go to this huge folder I keep under a table board.

          Jigsaw puzzles are always fun to do, and puzzles that are related to Geography or History are also educational. Very nice idea for a lens - lensrolled to my USA States lens.
