Life on the Farm 1000 Piece Jigsaw Puzzle
It’s a busy afternoon at the farm. As the cows are brought in for milking, Paul and Anne watch the piglets play around in the mud. This 1000 piece puzzle was painted by the talent Kevin Walsh, who is known for his nostalgic scenes and has many jigsaws in the Gibsons range.
As with all Gibsons jigsaws, Life on the Farm uses 100% recycled puzzle board, vegetable inks and FSC paper. The beautifully illustrated pieces are designed to fit perfectly together; in fact, Gibsons use the thickest puzzle board on the market. Everyone loves a Gibsons jigsaw, even Her Majesty the Queen has been spotted with one.

Find Your Zen with Mindful Slow Entertainment
Jigsaw puzzles are a great way to unwind. They demand attention which makes doing them, both absorbing and meditative at the same time. When concentrating on creative pursuits like art, craft or indeed jigsaw puzzles, you subconsciously tune out other distracting thoughts. In essence, your mind goes blank. Furthermore this quieting of the mind is highly therapeutic and forms the basis of meditation practice in eastern religions and philosophies. In Zen Buddhism, every action can become a source of meditation. From simply walking to making things, to doing jigsaws. The art of Zen is to dedicate your mind and thoughts only to the action that you are doing now.
