When I think of summer, I think of sunshine, pool, and friends. So when it was raining yesterday, my days of normal summer fun were put on hold. What was I going to do? I was so bored. My dad suggested I do a puzzle. A puzzle? That was not the cure for my boredom, as puzzles are super-easy. Then my dad grabbed a 500-piece puzzle from the closet. Yes, five hundred pieces! When he left for work, I got started on it. Then, except for food and bathroom breaks, I didn’t stop working until he came home! It didn’t even feel like an hour had passed since he’d left. I was so absorbed in that puzzle. It was a fun way to spend the rainy day, and a great way to exercise my brain, too! Next time you find yourself stuck inside on a rainy day, instead of parking yourself in front of the TV, give your brain a workout and do a puzzle! And if you run out of activities, you can get today’s activity sheet!
