How many pieces can you count? 1,2,3,4! Can you name all the animals? Elephant, bird, monkey, lion! Why don’t we make animal sounds as we play - roar! Let’s practise our problem-solving skills by colour-matching the animals to the correct slots. When we are older, we can call out the animal names on the puzzle board. Let’s tickle the elephant’s embroidered ears, stroke the lion’s soft mane and pull the monkey’s tail – careful, not too hard! When we’ve finished piecing our puzzle together, we can place it safely in its storage bag, ready for another day of problem-solving play!
Playing with puzzles boosts hand-to-eye coordination and problem solving skills.
