Kids love to tinker, explore, and play! Their curious and imaginative minds are eager to learn new things everyday. Give kids wooden blocks and you’ll often find them building and inventing something cool. Or, just let them take something apart to examine its inner workings. Puzzles can help your child develop goal-setting skills and patience. Your child will learn early on to associate the finished puzzle with a goal, and they’ll have to muster the patience to complete it. This also fosters persistence, as they’ll continue to try even if they place a puzzle piece in the wrong area.
