For centuries people have enjoyed putting together jigsaw puzzles. They are a relaxing way to pass the time, especially while stuck inside during this ‘stay-at-home’ period in our lives. But getting new puzzles can be a challenge right now. Stores are closed, online shipping entities such as Amazon have slowed shipping on all non-essential products. And with social distancing, you can’t even make a puzzle with a friend right now! Or can you?
