Puzzles: Brain Food
Puzzles are brain food. They help develop reasoning and problem-solving abilities. They help your child recognize patterns and to develop strategies to complete the picture. Puzzles help your toddler strengthen fine-motor and hand-eye coordination skills, which are important in day-to-day routines like brushing his teeth or eating with a spoon. When playing with others, puzzles are good for developing effective communication and for completing a task together.
For children between 1 and 2 years old, it's important to choose simple puzzles - knob puzzles, ones with no more than 2-3 pieces to put together, or ones where the pieces fit naturally into the shapes within the puzzle (sail in a saiboat, wheel in a car). Basic puzzles will create a foundation of success encouraging more complex ones later.
