3V1425.03 Puzzle: Donald Duck (12/17/81)
Putting together a 48 piece Donald Duck puzzle has been one of Peggy’s main entertainments lately. At first she would simply grab a piece, wave it around, and ask, “Where does this go?” Someone would help her, and we would try to give her good tips — do the outside first, look at the picture, try to match pieces to the picture… Within a couple of days, she would place pieces quite well on her own, although she would still hold up a piece and ask “Where does this go?” Frequently she would then place it herself before anyone could answer her, or indeed even tell what piece she had. Within a week, she could do the entire puzzle herself in a relatively short time and ceased to ask at all for advice.
NB. This puzzle was given to Peg in mid September.
