Puzzles are essential in developing a child’s motor skills, memory and problem solving abilities. Puzzles for kids provide an opportunity for children to change the environment around them and work directly on its shape and appearance. As kids flip, remove, turn and even bend pieces of the puzzle, they learn to fine-tune their hand-eye coordination skills and eventually fix the puzzle accurately.
While refining kid’s motor skills is crucial in developing better handwriting, acquiring problem-solving skills will help children become better functioning adults. Puzzle games for kids teach these skills by encouraging children to use their own minds to figure out which piece fits. Puzzle games also work as great brain teasers since they encourage kids to use their memory power to remember which pieces are going to be needed in the near-future based on their color, shape and size.
Jigsaw puzzles engage the brain’s two lobes, thereby using brainpower that combines the right brain’s intuitive and creative approach to situations with the left brain’s logical and chronological strategy. Solving these puzzles also expand a child’s innate creativity and increases their concentration. Constantly looking at images will also help kids with visualization and imagination.
