Kyiv-Themed Puzzles to Beat the Quarantine Blues
Though some restrictions have loosened in Kyiv, many people will continue to self-isolate. But after a while of being at home all the time, you end up doing nothing and feeling lethargic.
To help you get out of that slump, we have rounded up some ideas that will keep your brain active, your mind nimble, and your spirits high.
Puzzles can engage you in a variety of fun problem-solving and learning activities. Some of them can give you an opportunity to travel while you are stuck at home. And most importantly, they are great for both children and adults.
Let’s go down the list.
