Puzzles

PuzzlesPuzzles are a great way to have fun and they teach many skills through play.

So parents, it’s time to DECIDE, DESIGN AND DO!  

Having a puzzle tray in your home, perhaps with a picture your child has chosen from a magazine and backed onto cardboard, is a great way to start.  Your child will be interested in the puzzle. Why? Because they choose the picture! And…  if  the puzzle isn’t completed, we can complete it tomorrow.

VNB: Completion of task is very important skill, which we want to encourage, hence we build puzzles on a tray, so I don’t have to pack up an unfinished puzzle because it is bed time, supper time, etc.

A few of the basic skills building puzzles encourage and improve include:

  • Problem solving
  • Hand eye coordination
  • Fine motor development
  • Self esteem
  • Social skills
  • Patience
  • Concentration
  • Goal setting
  • Shape recognition

What I know is that we can learn through play together and even though this is a puzzling time,  puzzles are a great way to do that.

Warm wishes,

Renee
