Vibrantly colored birds enjoying a sunny day at the birdhouse - perfect for the bird lover. The image offers lots of opportunity for fun conversations - "How many birds are there?", "Are any two the same?", "Can you see a cardinal?"
The puzzle pieces and tray are color coded according to their placement on the puzzle – top, side, bottom, etc. Each group of pieces is presented to the person individually. By following the colored clues on the tray and the sequence of steps in the instructions, the person is guided to successfully place the pieces without help. This is repeated for each group until the puzzle is complete. Because the person is generally able to select and place the pieces on their own, they have a great feeling of satisfaction and accomplishment (often accompanied by a big smile).
A great activity for people with dementia or Alzheimer's who always liked jigsaw puzzles but now find standard puzzles too challenging.
