Recently, I thought about what to start buying puzzles for the youngest daughter. With the older we have only what species were not. But the youngest received 2 packs for the first time. I was worried that it would be difficult for her to collect them, but it turned out that all my fears were in vain. My daughter gladly collects them and you need to buy new ones so that they don’t bother her.
It seems to me that puzzles are very useful for child development. And for an adult too. When we regularly collected them with the eldest daughter, I, too, could add up the picture for speed. I know for sure, because at one adult party, I participated in a puzzle-gathering competition and won 🙂 And for kids, this is generally a must-have toy.
– spatial orientation
– creative thinking
– fine motor skills
– acquaint the child with color and shapes
I think that this list is not limited to the benefits of such toys.
What kind of puzzles are not for sale! My head is spinning when I walk up to the shelves in the store. I will try to systematize my knowledge about them.
Wood. This time I chose my daughter just such puzzles. They are designed for kids. They have large parts that are convenient to hold in the handle, they are also thick. Puzzles can be inserted into the frame, which facilitates their folding.
Cardboard. The most popular type. They stack everything, from young to old. They differ in the number of parts and size. My girlfriend, for example, likes to hang over a box of 2000 parts. My head does not fit, as she manages to fold the sky, which is all blue ?!
Soft. This variety has a main picture of thick paper, and the base of foam rubber. They also differ in large size. We have such puzzles did not go at one time, because folding them is not very convenient, they slide.
Books. Such puzzles also did not take root with us. Usually this kind of book is a book, on one page which has a text, and on the other there is a frame in which the details are inserted. I do not know how in others, but in our puzzles do not hold and constantly fall out. Therefore, now it is a separate book and a separate pile of parts that are mixed, and it is not possible to expand them.
3D. In fact, these are sets for making figures from many parts. Sometimes they are equipped with a mechanism and can move after assembly. They can portray anything, from animals to the masterpieces of world culture.
When choosing puzzles for your child, you need to focus primarily on his age and level of development. Someone even in 2 years can add a picture with the Notre-Dame de Paris, and someone in 3 will collect a horse. The main thing to remember is that a child up to a certain age is better not to be left alone with small details.
And what puzzles do you choose for your child?
