This Ice Cream puzzle has only 12 pieces, an adult-oriented image, and large pieces which are easier to pick up. Puzzles are made of a thick, durable chipboard and are 8.25" X 11" when complete. Consider for MindStart middle activity level.

People with dementia have difficulty with traditional puzzles that have many pieces and detailed images; all the pieces look too similar. MindStart puzzles are unique because the images have simple objects in each image with contrasting colors, making it easier for the person to find pieces that go together.  This design feature, along with having less puzzle pieces, allow people with dementia to have the right level of brain stimulation and success.

"Large piece puzzles help people with memory loss due to dementia"

Therapist Tip: Stimulation of the brain occurs when setting jigsaw puzzles as the patient uses visual skills, the skills of problem solving and matching, and coordination of the fingers.  The image on the puzzle product can also trigger memories and reminiscence.  MindStart puzzles are a form of therapy for adults with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia and also head injury, Parkinson's, stroke, or frail elderly who tire easily. Also, the large size of the puzzle pieces help seniors with vision loss, as they can easily see and handle the pieces.  The Ice Cream puzzle can stimulate conversation about favorite flavors, ice cream toppings, and common times to eat ice cream.

Customer Reviews
Rating 12-piece ice cream puzzle
I highly recommend all mind start puzzles. I have purchased 5 puzzles with 24 pieces and 4 puzzles with 12 pieces. Love these puzzles. My mom has enjoyed doing these puzzles daily. It brings her great joy and a great sense of accomplishment when she completes one. This is an activity we can do together or she can do on her own.
