Creative Ways to Celebrate National Puzzle Day

What is one of the most fun, unofficial holidays of the year?

National Puzzle Day, of course!


Puzzles develop skills because they are difficult to solve. Besides being entertaining and fun, puzzles are beneficial to your health. Puzzles increase creativity and improves memory.

So, host a puzzle party today and send invites in the form of a crossword puzzle. Serve a puzzle cake–perhaps a Rubik’s Cube or Sudoku.

And then, spend the day solving a puzzle with your family and friends.

Do you have a favorite puzzle? Please share in the comments below.

  1. Happy National Puzzle Day! I’m working on the world’s largest jigsaw puzzle at the moment – 40,320 pieces – Memorable Disney Moments. I’ve just finished the 7th section, so 28,224 pieces assembled and 12,096 to go! I hope everyone enjoys a crossword, sudoku, jigsaw or whatever puzzle makes them happy today!

      • Working on it here in my home, in Florida. It’s scenes from 10 different Disney movies, and I’m putting them together one at a time and storing them till they’re all done and ready for assembly. Each section is 54 inches x 38 inches, so the completed puzzle will be 22.5 feet long and almost 6.5 feet high!

    Every day I do the Sudoku puzzle in the newspaper. I also do the crossword puzzle except on Sunday. The answers are in the paper. No challenge. If I am stuck, I just look.
