The simple things are important! Puzzles.

With all the technology at our disposal, it is easy to forget how important the simple things are for a child. Doing a puzzle not only requires dedication and attention it teaches and allows a child to practice planning, coordination, patience, problem solving, spatial reasoning, and more. As a child grows introducing harder puzzles increases confidence and builds experience. I often help as I introduce harder puzzles, with the borders and grouping pieces close by so it is not too overwhelming. But, I never let them know I am helping, even when he says he needs help. © – if you like, share 🙂 someone else may too!
