Back to School with Rubik’s

We love Rubik’s in our house and were very jealous earlier in the year when he got sent some of the Rubik’s Junior animal puzzles, so to level the playing field a bit we’ve been sent a classic puzzle and a 2×2 version of the classic for kids, to help get us ready for school. There was also another animal puzzle for L so he didn’t feel left out. Rubik's

L got straight in with the puzzles, he has learnt from playing with the animals what is expected of him and I think about 20 seconds had elapsed before I realised I was never, ever, going to be able to solve the puzzles. Not that it has stopped me trying though!

The main idea of getting the puzzles in the lead up to the new school term was a bit of brain training. Getting the kids completing the puzzles and getting them focused on something ready for the new school year.Rubik's

I have found the puzzles to have a very different and unexpected use in run up to the new term. You see not only is it a new school year, for L it is his first school year, he starts school on Monday. Three days left at home with me. I am freaking out. Honestly, I’m not handling it well at all.

There have been plenty of tears and utterly irrational thoughts and I have found just sitting trying to solve my Rubik’s Cube has been incredibly calming, so much so I think they should be given to all parents ready for that back to school season. They are like adult fidget spinners, only they are way more fun and not at all pointless, unlike actual fidget spinners which I still just do not ‘get’.Rubik's

The classic 3×3 cube has become my nemesis, everytime I think I might be getting somewhere I lose it again.

But what of the 2×2 cube, the supposedly easy kids version of the frustratingly brilliant puzzle. Pah, easier! It’s still impossible and has strangely disappeared from the house. Husb has nabbed it to take to work and is trying to solve it, he’s a lot closer than me with two sides all matched up, but he still can’t quite manage it.Rubik's

The Junior animals have remained as popular as ever with L and are still the only puzzles I can actually solve! Maybe I need to go back to school?! I really think they make fab back to school gifts and I love you can the puzzle that is right for you and that they have something for all ages.
