Mary Green puzzleSince April of 2011, peer Mary Green has attended Perry Wellness Center. During that time, she has become actively involved in all aspects of learning and creative projects that are available at the center.

“I learned a long time ago that there is no space for idle hands at Perry Wellness Center,” Mary explains. “We are blessed to have groups and projects to keep us busy. I try to learn new things with each project I complete.”

This past Monday morning was typical, when break time found her quietly sorting the colors and shapes of a newly selected jigsaw puzzle from the growing collection available for peers to complete. Among other skills, puzzles can teach better focus and concentration, pattern recognition, and cooperative play. Plus, they’re just plain fun!
