Puzzles have a known solution, whereas most other problems do not. While puzzles are certainly frustrating at the best of times, we are given the opportunity to learn patience with ourselves.  Puzzles offer a complete problem solving experience from defining the goal, to determining the characteristics of the given, and finally the solution. By observing ourselves and others while we solve puzzles, we can learn about roadblocks to creative problem solving. As we become aware of these roadblocks, we can practice going around them or avoiding them altogether.  The more we exercise this part of our mind the more adept we become.  Puzzling, it can be said, is practicing problem solving, …but don’t tell your kids that. ; )
