First Puzzles for Toddlers

Physical Benefits

At a young age, puzzles help children to develop fine motor skills, which in everyday terms means the ability to make small (or fine) movements. The picking up, grasping or pincing of pieces helps to develop fine muscle control, which in turn helps your child when it comes to writing-ready time. 
What about large motor skills? What? You've never seen a jigsaw puzzle being built with intermittent handstands? Guess you've never met Jude!  This boy cracks me up!
Keep them laughing,

P.S. Any good puzzles for kids that you'd like to share with us?

  1. I have a couple of grandkids who do the same kind of thing. Their hands may be drawing pictures or playing with tiny toys, but their feet and legs are doing something else entirely!
