Even the simplest of puzzles require toddlers to think and develop different approaches to achieve a single goal. They analyze and use their grey matter as they put together the pieces of the puzzles. These toys directly impact their problem solving and reasoning skills which help them grow well in their professional as well as personal life.
Apart from solutions and reasoning, toddlers learn shapes, colors, sizes and a deeper understanding of how a small unit forms a part of the whole set. The puzzles may vary depending upon their theme and can be helpful in solidifying the basics like alphabets, numerals, animals, fruits and much more.
Hand eye coordination
While putting the right shapes into their correct spaces or putting together pieces of a castle, toddlers work on their hand eye coordination. The wrong piece obviously does not fit and they have to try all over again. This trial and error helps them to do what they actually see.
Solving a puzzle requires children to pick up the objects, sort them, slot them and fit them without any breakage so these educational toys refine their motor skills. Motor skills are required for eating, writing and for manipulating almost anything.
The kind of satisfaction children get from solving the entire puzzle is unmatched by any other kind of toy. Their self confidence increases manifolds by the accomplishment and the praise that follows thereafter. As the games get more challenging, they also learn other social skills like the importance of cooperative play, how to take things to their completion, how to handle frustration and never-say-die attitude.
While exercising is meant to keep the body fit, puzzles and mind teasers for toddlers are meant to keep their mind fit. These educational toys prepare children early in life for the competitive world out there without compromising on fun. Give you child the best puzzles and let them face the world with confidence.
