The Perfect Game App For Busy Moms

The Perfect Game App for Busy Moms

This post is sponsored by Jigsaw Puzzle but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

As a mom of four, my life is chaotic! If I’m not chasing kids around, I’m driving them around. So much of my day is filled with waiting, and sometimes I just need something to occupy my mind while I wait, other than mindlessly scrolling through social media. Now I have Jigsaw Puzzle in my life! This app keeps my mind sharp, and helps to pass the time while I wait. It’s the perfect game app for busy moms who just need to relax or keep busy during all those hours of waiting!

Jigsaw Puzzle App

Other than helping my kids with their puzzles, I haven’t put together a puzzle of my own in MANY years. Growing up, my beloved Grandma lived next door, and we used to spend hours working on puzzles together. Unfortunately, those days are long gone.

The Best Apps for Moms
I was fairly young when I became a mother, and because we spaced our children out, we always had curious little hands in our home. I simply couldn’t leave a puzzle out, because it definitely wouldn’t go undisturbed. As soon as I downloaded the Jigsaw Puzzle app, I instantly remembered just how calming it can be to work on a puzzle!

I’m going to be completely honest. I rarely download game apps onto my phone or iPad. If I do, I try them out, then delete them fairly quickly, because they become very repetitive. Jigsaw Puzzle, however, is different. Not only do they offer a free daily puzzle to keep the app fresh, but it also allows you to work on multiple puzzles at once. Mom life is very interrupted, so I love the fact that I can just stop immediately at any given point, and pick up where I left off at a later time!

Apps for Moms
Jigsaw Puzzle is a versatile and customizable app! I can choose the amount of puzzle pieces I want to use, from 4 to 400 (and up to 1024 on tablets), so it’s a great app for my entire family. Even my 5 year old, who has Down syndrome, can use it! I love being able to choose the difficulty level of my puzzles by choosing the amount of puzzle pieces and adjusting the time clock setting, and I love the fact that I’m able to move the puzzle pieces around just like I would with an actual puzzle.

Jigsaw Puzzle App
One thing I really like about Jigsaw Puzzle, is having the ability to customize my experience even further. I can customize my game board by choosing from free backgrounds, but I still prefer the original wood table background. I can play music or soothing nature sounds in the background, such as Greensleeves, Vivaldi, or Chopin, and rain or ocean waves. And, of course, the sound can be turned off for those “quiet” waiting times. I love classical music, so I usually choose that, but I also use rain and ocean waves frequently! Using Jigsaw Puzzle actually relaxes me and challenges me at the same time! 

Jigsaw Puzzle
When I pick my puzzle, I have so much to choose from. Jigsaw Puzzle has over 10,000 beautifully intricate puzzles. They have puzzle packs of every kind from mosaics to popular tourist destinations to famous pieces of art to adorable animals. Many of those puzzles are free, and I can even search for puzzles that suit my interests, or create a puzzle from a favorite personal photo! My favorite puzzle packs are Art, Nature, Animals, and Travel. I mean, who wouldn’t like to put together a puzzle of puppies frolicking in the snow?!? Instant happiness!

My busy life as a mom isn’t going to slow down ANYTIME soon, but I’m so glad I can relax and keep my mind occupied with Jigsaw Puzzle! Whether I’m kicking up my feet for a few rare moments of peace, waiting in the carpool line, or passing the time during many hours at the dance studio or at the basketball court, I now have something to rely on to keep me busy and calm. It really is the perfect game app for this busy mom on the go!

  1. I love puzzles. I occupy myself with a cross stitch app that is a lot of fun!

  2. I keep meaning to do a puzzle - it's been years now. Sounds like a fun app, and I like that it has different difficulty levels.
