Tuesday’s Tidbit

Does your toddler excel at losing puzzle pieces? Mine sure does! In fact, within minutes of opening a new puzzle, I’m searching under couch cushions, inside shoes and under toilet seats (yes, really) for the missing pieces.

Let me help you out just a bit … it doesn’t prevent your toddler from hiding the pieces, but this little trick will help them from going flying when your toddler carries the puzzle to and fro and around the house. What I’m about to share with you will change your world, as you realize they can be used for the same purpose with so many other things around your house…

Ready?? They are only $1.97 at Wal-Mart …

Velcro Dots! Yep, mmm-hmmm, you got it! “Why didn’t I think of that?” you may ask? Probably the same reason I didn’t … I was too busy picking up those stinking loose puzzle pieces! Obviously this only works for wooden puzzles, but hey, they are the most expensive, so it’s worth it! Simply place the scratchy dot inside the puzzle, and the soft dot on the puzzle pieces … and wallah! Your toddler can chuck that puzzle across the room (like mine does…*sigh*) and it will all be in one “piece”!
