What skills do puzzles teach children?
Puzzles are a fun activity for your toddler to enjoy solo or they make a fantastic shared experience. Puzzles can help improve your toddler’s cognitive skills, hand-eye co—ordination and motor skills, social and sharing skills and developing problem solving skills. Watch your toddler explore lateral thinking as they piece together a puzzle and work out which piece fits where.
Watch your child’s self esteem and confidence in problem solving soar as they complete puzzles designed for kids and excited tell you about their achievement and explain the process they took to complete the jigsaw puzzle.
What age can kids do puzzles?
From the time your baby s interested in play and can grasp items in their hands, you can start to introduce age appropriate puzzles for babies. Stacking wooden toys that connect together or thread onto a pole is a great starting point before moving to a colour sorting puzzle where the primary objective is to match the colour on the puzzle board with the puzzle piece.
Toddlers benefit greatly from floor puzzles in a theme of interest. Puzzles will help expand your toddlers concentration level and give them a great sense of achievement when completing the puzzle – don’t forget to then play a game of ‘can you find?’ with the items in the puzzle picture which will help your toddler develop colour recognition and expand their vocabulary – this is also a great game to play when reading a children’s book to your toddler. Introducing colouring activities to your toddler’s learning play is another fantastic way of developing colour recognition.
A great skill tester and memory development tool for older children - don’t forget to slowly increase the puzzle skill level for your children to keep expanding their learning and skills.
Family puzzles and kids puzzle games are great to enjoy together and inspire some healthy family time and conversation.
