The simple things are important! Puzzles.

The simple things are important! Puzzles.

With all the technology at our disposal, it is easy to forget how important the simple things are for a child. Doing a puzzle not only requires dedication and attention it teaches and allows a child to practice planning, coordination, patience, problem solving, spatial reasoning, and more. As a child grows introducing harder puzzles increases confidence and builds experience. I often help as I introduce harder puzzles, with the borders and grouping pieces close by so it is not too overwhelming. But, I never let them know I am helping, even when he says he needs help.
