If you are looking for a fun, unique and indoor-based family activity, head to Picxel in Marina Square to create your very own personalized puzzle. The process is super simple. First, provide Picxel staff with a treasured picture. It can be of the family, a special event (eg. wedding, birthday), pet or cartoon. The Picxel staff will then load the image into their software and create an online pixelized version. They then help determine what color blocks you need, the complexity of the puzzle and suggest an appropriate size. Within 10 minutes everything you need to assemble your puzzle is ready to take home (the colored blocks, the board and assembly instructions). When you get home, it’s time for the real fun to begin – putting the puzzle together! The blocks and board are similar to lego but the pieces are quite small, so the assembly does require some skill and patience. When you are done, you can continue to enjoy your masterpiece by hanging it on the wall, which serves not only as a memento of the good times in the photo but of the fun times you spent together assembling it!
It’s creative, fun, and a good way to spend time together as a family.
The whole family! Note that the puzzle pieces are quite small so it is recommended for ages 5 and above.
If you like the idea of a pixelized picture to hang on the wall but aren’t so keen on assembling it yourself, Picxel offers an assembly service for an additional fee. They work with non-profit organizations that receive 100% of the assembly fee to help put your puzzle together.
