National Puzzle Day!

Jan 29, 2018


Jane David

Exercise your problem brain with a puzzle. January 29th is National Puzzle Day.

Whether it’s a crossword, jigsaw, trivia, word searches, brain teasers or puzzles put our minds to work.

Studies have found that when we work on a jigsaw puzzle, we use both sides of the brain, and spending time daily working on puzzles improves memory, cognitive function and problem-solving skills.

Word searches and crossword puzzles have the obvious benefit of increasing vocabulary and language skills.

The bottom line is, puzzles stimulate the brain, keeping it active and practicing its skills.


Spend time putting together a jigsaw puzzle with a friend, or grab a cup of coffee and complete a Sudoku or crossword puzzle.   Use #NationalPuzzleDay to post on social media.


Started in 2002 by Jodi Jill, National Puzzle Day was created as a way to share her enjoyment of puzzles.  As a syndicated newspaper puzzle maker and professional quiz maker, Jodi Jill developed classroom lesson plans especially for National Puzzle Day and the popularity has grown year after year.
