Kids can play jigsaw puzzles on this website. But that’s not all. They can take any topic they learned at school that day and type it in on the website, get pictures on that topic from Google and Flickr and with a click, convert those pictures into jigsaw puzzles and start playing them. This should make it fun while learning.
