I’ve always loved putting together jigsaw puzzles. There’s just something to relaxing about seeing a pile of seemingly random pieces come together to form a gorgeous image, so satisfying about placing that last piece. Before Jake, I did puzzles all the time. I always had one going on the table. After Jake, well, I didn’t have the time. Then he was too little and I didn’t want him to eat the pieces. Then I didn’t have the time again. Then we got pets that are prone to stealing things that don’t belong to them (like puzzle pieces).

Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is the perfect game for a little “me” time

We moms are always crazy busy, right? Like I said, I no longer have the time (or the room, really) to conquer a 1,000 piece puzzle on my dining room table. I wish I did, but I don’t. Magic Jigsaw Puzzles gives me exactly what I love about doing a puzzle but in a much, much smaller package. There’s a reason this is one of my favorite jigsaw puzzle apps: it’s loaded with amazing features.

With five difficulty levels, I can choose how many pieces I want to work with depending on how much free time I actually have. If I’m short on time, I may just do a 72 piece puzzle. If I have a bit more time to relax, I’ll go with a higher piece count!

Since they partner with National Geographic, I have the chance to put together some truly gorgeous and adorable puzzles featuring everything from backyard wildlife to stunning landscapes. We have a raccoon that comes to visit every night to steal the cat food we put out for the feral family, so I put one together in honor of her (I don’t know if she’s really a girl, but I named her Rosalind, so I sure hope so!).

While they have a constantly updating collection of over 20,000 puzzles to choose from, you can also easily make your own if you want! Then you can share that puzzle with the world, see what others have created, and leave encouraging comments on their masterpieces.

Other awesome features include a weekly tournament where you can show off your mad puzzle solving skills, an incredibly active Facebook community with over 75,000 users and, perhaps most important, the ability to transfer your game from device to device. Magic Jigsaw Puzzles is available on just about every platform, including Facebook, Apple, Android, Windows and Amazon devices. It’s also available in all locations and in 10 different languages.

Visit Magic Jigsaw Puzzles to download the game for your favorite platform.  Check out the Facebook community to keep up with news and interact with other plays, and follow Magic Jigsaw on Twitter to keep up with their latest news.

You deserve a “me time” break this Mother’s Day. Treat yourself to the National Geographic Mother’s Day puzzle pack and your me time could make you a winner!
