Puzzles are a fun way to train recognition, logical thinking, patience, and hand-eye coordination. This Ravensburger In the Land of the Dinosaurs Puzzle can strengthen your child's thinking and short term memory while having fun!
Puzzles are essential for helping your child grow through the years. Not only are they timeless products, as they come in so many varieties and forms, but they are also durable, and can be fun for many different ages. Starting off with toddlers, engaging them in a wooden block-matching puzzle consisting of shapes or letters, boosts their cognitive recognition, problem solving, fine motor development, and hand eye coordination. As your child gets older, transitioning them to floor puzzles with big pieces extends their problem solving abilities, develops their gross motor skills, and allows them to add onto their cognitive skills as they complete. Finally, when they progress to pre-teen age, puzzles with many smaller pieces and more challenging images will increase their analytical thinking and create for them a relaxing and enjoyable hobby.
