Puzzles are an all-time favorite among children and adults alike. From the ages of 4 to 5, children are able to solve puzzles. Puzzle-solving is not only fun and engaging but also very educational and thought-provoking. It helps develop motor skills and hand-to-eye coordination together with challenging the brain to think differently through color, shape, and picture recognition. Puzzles help in cognition learning and build skills such as visual reasoning, spatial awareness, short-term memory, and logic.
Matching patterns, structures, and different figures, sorting into colors and shapes, hunting and experimenting make the child develop surprising skills through playing.
Cognitive or problem-solving skills are particularly evident when playing a matching game. Solving tasks like recreating a face, allows them to learn from cause and effect.
