4 benefits of jigsaw puzzles for kids
If you’re letting go off jigsaw puzzles for your kids, you might want to bring this important tool of learning and development back. Besides being engaging, they have many benefits that helps aid your child’s development. Some of them are:
1. Since there is only one way to solve the problem, the trial and error method is put to use. Kids are thus required to focus and the eye and hand coordination comes into place. This further develops their problem solving abilities.
2. Their problem-solving abilities and reasoning skills increases their visual awareness and they tend to learn more about shapes, environment and so on.
3. Since the brain produces dopamine that is responsible for learning and memory, while solving jigsaw puzzles, the production of this chemical is known to increase. Thus, those solving jigsaw puzzles have a longer life span and also lesser chances of falling prey to memory loss.
4. It also makes one alert and increases their concentration. Looking at the images helps in practising visualisation, which is great for any physical activity that succeeds mental activity . Times of India
