Fun for Children


Do you remember puzzles like this one? I used to enjoy them as a child. Simple and wholesome, they were very interesting to a six year old! This one came from a children's weekly church paper. Similar puzzles and games were also common in Highlights Magazine. Do you remember it? We never received it at home, but it was a staple of the doctor's office waiting room. It helped to keep your mind off the dread of having to go in for a shot!

  2. Hidden Pictures in Highlights is a definite good memory! we didn't get it either but one time my dad brought home a used stack from somewhere and my brother and I poured over them! Someone had circled the hidden pictures but we still loved them any way!

  3. ahemmmm....of course I remember these types of things..and actually as I was thinking about it..and looking at it...
    I think..it was probably VERY good for our mind, concentration and it DID not plug in or take batteries.

  4. Yes, I absolutely do remember Highlights magazine! My parents subscribed to it for a while, and I always saw it at the dentist's office too. Ah, the good old days - some things actually were much better; it isn't all nostalgia!

  7. Our piano teacher had Highlights magazine, so while my sisters and I waited through each other's lessons, we had fun reading the magazine and doing the puzzles.
