Best Autumn Farm Puzzles

Puzzle of the Day – Autumn Leaves and Laughter

It’s that time of year again – time for the trees to put on their final show with blazing colors of orange, red and yellow leaves. Time for pumpkins, apple cider, trick-or-treating, football and playing outside in the beautiful weather. To get you in the mood, this week’s jigsaw puzzle of the day is Memory Lane – Autumn Leaves and Laughter.

Created by Master Pieces for ages 13 and up, Memory Lane – Autumn Leaves and Laughter features colorful artwork by Randy Van Beek that you could get lost in. Imagine walking up to the beautiful Victorian home with the welcoming porch. Along the way, you kick up a few brilliant leaves that have fallen in your path. Children throw themselves into piles of leaves without abandon and after the pile scatters too much to jump in, they gather the leaves up in their red wagon to make new piles all while inventing new rules to their “game”.

The air is crisp, the bright red barn in the distance stands out against a clear blue sky. The neighbors must be burning leaves because you smell the unmistakable scent that takes you back to your childhood and those inevitable family “yard clean up” days. Maybe later you and the kids will get together and have a family pumpkin carving contest.

With 300 pieces, Memory Lane – Autumn Leaves and Laughter is jigsaw puzzle that will provide hours of challenging fun. Just in time for the season, too – when you complete this puzzle hang it over your fireplace and bring the change of season indoors to enjoy.
