Puzzle Challenge for my 20 months toddler
I really loved challenging my kids with the puzzles. I remembered introducing puzzles to my elder girl at 2.5 years old with a more difficult 16 pcs puzzle, those with rounded tabs on each side and have to interlock them. By 3, she was piecing 100pcs! She was doing more out of memory I guessed because she was piecing it over and over again at least 3 times a day!
So hey parents, challenge your toddler with some simple puzzles first. Introducing puzzles at an early stage can help toddlers to develop their motor ,cognitive and hand-eye skills. Also, depending on the theme of the puzzle, can also teach them to speak and learn new words. Did I mention about memory skills?
