Puzzles are known to not only exercise the mind but also challenge our way of thinking. Research shows that puzzles can play an important role in the development of your child.
- Problem-Solving Skills: Even completing the simplest puzzle is critical in setting and achieving a specific goal. It encourages kids to exercise their imagination and develop strategies on how to achieve this goal. This involves developing solutions, reasoning skills and problem-solving skills which they can later use in their adult future lives.
- Cognitive Skills: Puzzles aid in the understanding of the need to sequentially follow step by step directions to achieve a goal. Color, letter and spatial awareness skills achieved while playing puzzles are very important.
- Hand-Eye Coordination: Making the connection between the eye and the hand is best practiced by puzzles. This puzzle urges children to apply the process of “guess and check” to find the piece that fits, a child’s eyes, brain and hands are working to identify the piece, grasp it, work with it to make it fit and choose a new piece if that one isn’t the right fit.
- Fine Motor Development: Learning these skills at an early stage will eventually assist children in drawing skills, handwriting, and musical instruments. This puzzles requires children to grasp pieces of all shapes and sizes and manipulate them to fit exactly into a cutout shape or slot. This process can involve sorting and testing of various shapes until the right one is found. Through this task, children develop small muscle movements and dexterity in their hands and fingers.
- Self-Esteem: Just like an adult, the accomplishment of a set goal often brings so much satisfaction to a child. Overcoming the challenges involved in solving puzzles gives them a sense of pride and self-esteem. This not only boosts their self-confidence but also prepares them for other challenges in life.
