The puzzles are hosted on Jigsaw Planet, a site that lets you upload images, choose a layout, and instantly turn the image into a puzzle. One option is to embed these puzzles into a web page. That’s how they come to Annie’s Resource Attic.

The following tips will help you get the most out of the online puzzles. Scroll down below these suggestions for an index with links to all the puzzles. Each online puzzle also has a link at the foot of the main page for that activity set.

  • Scroll down below the puzzle for links to this page, the activity set main page, and the Annie’s Resource Attic home page.

  • If you need more space, consider temporarily closing the Bookmarks and Navigation toolbars.
  • Puzzles are now run by javascript and HTML 5, and are compatible with all modern browsers, including those on mobile devices.
  • If you have a very old system, you may still need an updated version of the Java plug-in installed and active. The Java plug-in has been inactivated for browsers in Mac OSX 10.5 or earlier, as of May 2012, to prevent users from possibly getting malware.
