Introduction

This jigsaw game is great for developing your child's problem-solving skills as they figure which piece goes where. Your child just has to click on each piece and then drag and drop it onto the square they think it should sit on. They might find it quite tricky to start with so you might want to lend a helping hand.

How to extend the fun

Click through to the Watch & Listen section and take a look at the clip of the Tellytales retelling of The Magic Porridge Pot. It was a bit scary at the end, but explain that the little girl eventually stopped the spell. Then ask your child what they would want to come out of a magic pot if they had one. Would it be toys, sweets or something more unusual?

How to make a magic moment

Pretend to be magicians or wizards and come up with some magic spells together. The sillier the spell the better! Wave your imaginary wands and shout 'Abra-cadabra'!
