The three basics of what puzzles do for your child

When your child is alone with a puzzle you can expect three basic skills to be built:

  • Physical skills — from holding puzzle pieces and turning them until they fit
  • Cognitive skills — as they solve the problems of a puzzle
  • Emotional skills — they learn patience and are rewarded when they complete the puzzle

These three basic skills are the building blocks for a well rounded person.

Young children learn by engaging in hands-on activities with real objects. Put simply, children learn by getting their hands dirty. Unstructured play (that is, play initiated by the child and not led by an adult) is an important part of their education; it has been shown to promote cognitive growth and to positively influence social interactions.
