What do puzzles teach preschoolers?
Puzzles are a great way to get your little ones thinking about color and shape identification and awareness. Engaging with puzzles gives them the chance to test ideas. By turning or flipping each puzzle piece, your little ones get the chance to match colors, test memory skills, and connect shapes. Not to mention, cut & paste activities are great for building the small muscles in the hands and fingers.
