Puzzles are an activity that has a clear end and children can recognise their success. This helps to build self-esteem and emotional development.
Picking up and placing small puzzle pieces helps your child to choose their preferred hand and refine their hand skills. Completing puzzles together is a fun way to develop teamwork, sharing and turn taking skills.
As children develop and try more complex puzzles, they learn early maths and science concepts such as a whole is made of parts.
The MAP OF AUSTRALIA WOODEN TRAY PUZZLE can also be used for art and learning projects. Trace around the states and mark the major cities, ports or places of interest.
