Just for fun...how do you put a puzzle together?

P has really gotten into puzzles lately and I love them too. I like to frame the puzzle and put the outside together first. P likes to put the middle together first. That got me thinking about how others do it. So...how do you put one together?

With O's 25 piece puzzles we normally start with the middle. When I used to work on puzzles with Joe's grandma, we always started with the outside frame.

I like to do the outside first. Mark and Greg like to just grab a piece and find where it goes. Drives me crazy! Lol.

I think the doing the outside is easier, tried to get A to do that with his puzzles.  BUt he likes to do whatever, and needs help usually lol

Outside first.  I have a brand new fairy puzzle to do, maybe we could have a puzzle party while we drink, lol!

Outside edges first, that's how my mom always had us do it.  I think it makes it easier to finish the puzzle.

Interesting to see how others do it.  I just want to know how P's little mind works and why he does it the way he does.  I too think putting the outside together  first is easier.  I tried to show him that, but he is much better at doing it his own way.
