Even though the Canadian Parliament voted Lacrosse as the official summer sport of Canada but we all know what the true Canadian sport is...... HOCKEY!!! Evolved from various sports, Hockey has become a national pastime for Canada be it on a frozen pond, a community ice sheet, or at a NHL Area. This festive winter scene by Eric Dowdle features hockey roots in a typical small town celebrating the season with a rousing gathering around the frozen river. Drop the puck and enjoy this piece with family over a cup of cocoa.
We are building a collection of hockey-themed jigsaw puzzles for our grandsons (ages 4 and 6) and this is one of several we have obtained so far. The 100 piece puzzles are easily doable by the 6 year old and the younger joins in as the puzzle nears completion. We've just started the first 300 piece puzzle and have just completed the border. Looking forward to the rest but it's a rainy/snowy/cold temp indoor activity and we've just got too much other playing to do so far. Puzzle quality is excellent. The only small hiccup is that reflection off the slightly glossy surface precludes doing these at night under our dining room table light. We're pretty much limited to daylight hours.
very nice puzzle
