Why Should Your Child Play With Puzzles?
If you have been following the series ‘How to develop your baby’s brain’ series on BabyChakra, you would know that I am a big fan of the Montessori-themed activities as it gives our little beings a lot of freedom.
Puzzles are a great toy as it helps in building multiple skills -
- Fine Motor Skills / Hand Eye Coordination
The ability to hold those pieces, putting them rightly in the slots/grooves does not come across as easy to the toddlers as it appears to us.
- Emotional Skills & Confidence
Have you ever seen the triumphant face of a toddler after s/he successfully solves the puzzle? They learn patience and gain a lot of confidence in the process of solving puzzles!
To remember which piece fits where and which one does not, no doubt the memory is being sharpened when your toddlers solves a puzzle
- Logic & Problem Solving
Do I need to elaborate more? This soft skill is much needed as they grow into independent individuals.
- Enhances Visual & Spatial Intelligence
Puzzles provide a beautiful opportunity to enhance the visual & spatial intelligence in an individual.
