Countdown to Christmas – Holiday Puzzles is an adorable collection of Christmas puzzles. There are twenty-four puzzles in all, enough to let your children complete one a day as they wait for Christmas Eve. The iPad app features different Christmas scenes, each with several puzzles. As you complete the puzzles you will unlock the next scene and so on until you find Santa’s sleigh.
Puzzles can be played in four different difficulty levels – easy, medium, hard and expert. Puzzle pieces are shuffled about and your child should tap and rearrange them to recreate the picture. Hints are available if needed. Once the puzzle is complete your child can tap on it to reveal several animated surprises.
Countdown to Christmas has a very jolly feel to it’s design and illustrations. Instrumental Christmas music plays in the background and it adds a nice touch. I like the idea of combining puzzles with a Christmas countdown and I appreciate the different difficulty levels because it means everyone in my family can play. This is another festive iPad app to add to your list!
