Cat Puzzle!

What is the best formula for assembling a 3 foot 3-D Cat Puzzle? 



I purchased a 3-D puzzle that was estimated to be about 3ft when completely assembled. The puzzle was in the shape of a cat that was divided into one-thousand pieces. It took me about a month to completely assemble the whole puzzle. When I first begin to put the puzzle together I figured it would be easier to connect the edges first. Unfortunately trying to connect the edges first turned out to be more of a headache for me.

Let’s look at the three different approaches I took to make assembling the puzzle easier!


  • First, I placed all the pieces together that looked similar. Any puzzle pieces that had the same color or patterns on them were placed in individual piles. Pieces that had traces of the borders were also placed in a separate pile.  


  • Next, I assembled different scenes into sections on the table. There were puzzle pieces with flowers, pieces with cute cat features and pieces with parts of a bird house. By connecting all the different scenes separately I was able to stay focused on the task of completing the puzzle. I also found that assembling the puzzle pieces this way made my project a more enjoyable experience.

  • Finally, when all the scenes were completely assembled I connected them. Then I was able to work on the borders of the puzzle with much more efficiency. Once I could see the puzzle scheme a little more clearly, I then added any addition pieces to complete my puzzle project.



I really enjoyed assembling this puzzle but I had only one drawback. I was missing four of the last pieces… LOL!
