Puzzles are an important educational learning tool for toddlers and young children as they provide many skills and mental learning benefits and opportunities. We like the way they challenge our thinking and exercise our minds.
All children learn differently and puzzles may be their medium for grasping an understanding of certain themes such as alphabets/ letters. Completing a puzzle, even the most simplest of puzzles sets a single goal to achieve.
Toddlers and children must think and develop strategies on how to approach in achieving this goal. This process involves problem solving, reasoning skills and developing solutions which they can later be transferred into their personal/adult life. It also increases their visual spacial awareness. The accomplishment of achieving a goal brings so much satisfaction to a child.
