Benefits of Puzzles
“Challenge young minds”
From early childhood right through to adulthood we love to play with puzzles. We like the way they
challenge our thinking and exercise our minds.
Puzzles are also an important educational learning tool for toddlers and young children as they provide
many skills and learning benefits and opportunities. They aid in developing basic skills such as shape
recognition, concentration, goal setting and patience. Puzzles help develop hand-eye co-ordination and fine
motor skills due to the precise nature of matching each piece exactly.
The accomplishment of achieving a goal brings so much satisfaction to a child. Overcoming the challenges involved in solving a puzzle really gives them a sense of achievement and pride within themselves.
It provides a boost to their self-confidence and self-esteem as this prepares them for other challenges in life.
