Puzzles: an all-round developmental activity!

Puzzles have long been a favorite learning toy of kids, moms and educators.  Giving children a variety of puzzles enhances their early childhood educational experience both at home and in school.

Puzzles build confidence!  The kind of satisfaction children get from solving the entire puzzle is unmatched by any other kind of toy.

Here are some of the skills that are enhanced by playing with puzzles:
  1. Cognitive skills: Puzzles improve a child's problem solving and reasoning skills. It helps them to see whole-part relationships, increases their visual spacial awareness and depending on the subject matter, it can teach them a variety of topics like the Alphabet, Numbers, Colour recognition, Shape recognition, Subjects like pets or transportation vehicles, and more.
  2. Fine motor skills: Puzzles are fun way to improve fine motor skills. Fine motor manipulation is key for writing but children start learning this skill long before they can hold a crayon or a pencil. Peg puzzles and Smart Starters can help teach little ones to pick up and grasp pieces and they aid in the development of the pincher grasp.
  3. Hand-eye coordination: As a child places each piece in the puzzle they are manipulating it so see if it fits. Their hand-eye coordination is enhanced through this trial and error process.
  4. Social skills: Puzzles can be done alone but are also a great tool for fostering co-operative play. As kids ask for a piece to be passed to them, or discuss where a piece should go, they are sharing the task and learning to co-operate. It can also help a child learn how to handle frustration when a piece does not fit.
