Why Puzzles Are So Good For a Child’s Mental and Physical Development -By Jean

Puzzles are a fun way for children to develop and refine their fine motor skills. When playing with puzzles, children have to pick up, pinch, and grasp pieces ( some with small knobs ) and move them around, manipulate, sort and fit them.
Doing puzzles requires a trial and error process which involves a lot of hand and eye coordination.
 
Puzzles are also a great educational tool which enhances and promotes cooperative play. As the children work together to complete a puzzle, they will discuss where a piece should go and they learn to take turns and share.
 
Completing a puzzle, even the most simplest of puzzles sets a single goal to achieve. Children must think and develop strategies. They are working on their problem-solving and reasoning skills. The accomplishment of achieving a goal brings so much satisfaction and joy to a child. Solving a puzzle gives them a sense of achievement and pride. This provides a boost to their self-confidence and self-esteem!
 
Puzzles come in a variety of themes and topics such as shapes, numbers, alphabet letters,  weather, fruits, pets, and animals. Puzzles can introduce and reinforce learning vocabulary , information and concepts.
 
Doing a puzzle with your child is a great way to spend time together!
