Designed for developing minds and tiny hands, many of the wooden puzzles for toddlers available today can give your child hours of enjoyment.
Puzzles of all kinds are a great way for young children and older children to increase their learning potential. There are many benefits to starting your toddler off working on the large wood ones that are easy to fit together. Their little hands can handle the larger pieces much easier than other types of puzzles.
Benefits Of Wooden Puzzles For Toddlers
- Self correcting – The best aspect of a wood puzzle is that it is self correcting. Nobody has to show the child how to do it right. They can figure this out by themselves and gain self confidence.
- Teaches shapes – Many of the wood puzzles have distinct shapes. Mom and dad can teach the child the names of the shapes. The child can then ask for the shape that matches the open spot in the puzzle.
- Hand to eye coordination – Toddlers do not typically have the best hand eye coordination. These types of puzzles can offer that to even the youngest child. They learn to use their hand to put the piece where their eyes tell them it belongs.
- Refines motor skills – Holding the large pieces and putting them in the puzzle board helps to build the strength in their hands. This is vital for their physical development.
It is amazing just how many ways wood puzzles can help toddlers learn and grow.
And when you add two toddlers together you get the added benefit of helping with social skills. They have to work together to complete the puzzle. The fact is that for a low cost, children get so many benefits from this classic toy!
