Jigsaw puzzles are having a moment. A pandemic moment, yes, but they’re great entertainment in non-pandemic times, too.

We created digital jigsaw puzzles from 6 of our favorite photos in our May/June 2020 issue. Like the idea? Let us know, and we’ll create more!

You can complete these digital jigsaw puzzles on your computer (recommended) or phone by following the links below. No sign-up or sign-in is necessary.

While we made the puzzles in varying levels of difficulty, you can reset the number of pieces before you begin if you want your puzzle to be harder or easier.

Enjoy your puzzling!

Marquette, Michigan Lower Harbor — 63 pieces

Aaron Peterson

The largest city on the UP, Marquette has a maritime feel. On the edge of downtown, a seawall in Marquette Bay tames Lake Superior.

National Balloon Classic Nite Glow — 96 pieces

Blaine Moats

Like a sea of enormous Japanese lanterns, nearly 100 anchored balloons light up the field during Nite Glow Extravaganza at the National Balloon Classic in Indianola, Iowa.

Formal Garden — 100 pieces

Matthew Benson

Terra-cotta pots with classical shapes and ornate designs make a garden look more formal. Frank Mariani of Lake Bluff, Illinois, uses containers en masse, singly and in pairs, elevating some pieces—like an urn or cloche—for more prominence.

Illinois State Capitol—60 pieces

Look up inside the Illinois State Capitol in Springfield to take in the 405-foot, Renaissance Revival-style central dome.

Blackberry Galette — 30 pieces

Blaine Moats

Chef Katharine Elder at Kansas' Elderslie Farm makes her fold-over berry tarts in two sizes: petite for sharing with a friend or pie-size like this, to slice and top with the farm's goat milk gelato.

Black Rocks at Presque Isle Park—80 pieces

Aaron Peterson

Thrill-seekers flock to this cliff-jumping spot at Presque Isle Park in Marquette, Michigan. The view from the rocks is (nearly) as memorable as taking the plunge. And much less frigid.
