Two Fun Sites to Share

Thatcher and I have come across two great sites we use almost daily between our therapy and schooling. Online-stopwatch.com is a great site with all sorts of timers and stopwatches that make "beat-the-clock" a much more fun game! Thatcher loves trying to beat the bomb countdown when doing his math and I love the egg timer best. We use the stopwatch for his math drills and there is a great online calculator as well.

We also have found jigzone.com. This is a site with 100's if not 1000's of puzzles you can solve online. First choose your desired puzzle from that week's options or go back in the archives for many more. Next, choose how many pieces you want and what cut you desire. We prefer "classic cut" so it's most like a traditional puzzle but there are tons of other options. We use this site daily. Haddon has become very proficient at solving 20 piece puzzles and Thatcher has worked up to 64 piece puzzles in under 10 minutes. This would be a great reward as part of school if you are looking for some quasi-educational but still fun treats!

P.S. Don't forget to become a follower of SSA and leave a comment on this post before midnight on 7/13/09 to enter my very first giveaway! :)

Thanks for the cool links! My older girls are on a 1000 piece puzzle kick (just bought them 2 more at the used bookstore yesterday!)...and I confess to spending a great deal of time on them myself. I find doing a puzzle completely mind-clearing. I can't think about anything while doing a puzzle. :)
