Puzzles are an excellent tool for enhancing your child’s cognitive and mental development, by stimulating intellectual abilities such as critical reasoning through fine-motor manipulation. I encourage Adrian to complete at least one puzzle a day (at his level: 48-60 pieces does not take him⏳ long). Julia, on the other hand, works with large quantity piece puzzles (she is currently working on MonaLisa 300 pc puzzle buy here), so we always have a puzzle on the floor that she is working on.
Surely, children have their favorite puzzles to which they go back to and assemble over and over again, but there is nothing like an excitement of assembling a new puzzle for the first time. So, what about making a puzzle! This✂️ DIY is very simple, quick and inexpensive. Use a vivid 🖼picture from a catalog, calendar or even a large picture of the family/children and cut it in pieces, creating a DIY puzzle.
With smaller children, 📉choose a bright image with many distinct objects and cut it in fewer pieces (2 or 4 squares) or simply cut the picture vertically, for easier assembly.

Adrian really enjoys the Solar System puzzles (see here) a post "🌌COSMOS Unit Study."
