Puzzles, as you probably know, are fantastic learning toys. They help children develop hand-eye coordination, spatial skills, and fine motor skills. Plus, these double sided options allow children room to be creative.
Play with your children and talk about the colors, shapes, and design. This intentional play is a wonderful opportunity to build language and learning.
P’Kolino Wooden Puzzles for Preschoolers
I just gifted the new double-sided wooden puzzles form P’Kolino to my chiropractor’s son who is 18 months and he LOVES them.
It’s fun to mix and flip the shapes, colors, and designs on this bug puzzle. The holes in the center pieces help little hands grasp and pull out the pieces.
Isn’t this flower puzzle perfect for spring playtime?
Think of all the STEM / STEAM foundation that puzzle play provides! Engineering and math in particular.
Not only that, kids are building up their memory — each time building the set will probably go a little faster since they’ll have familiarity.
And, what about problem solving? Kids are forced to think of the solution to the question: where does this piece go?
So much learning in simple puzzle play!
To store, put the puzzles in a tub or a clear plastic bag.
