Other benefits of 3D puzzles for children
Increase reasoning and problem solving
The very definition of a puzzle is to be challenging so it goes without saying that puzzles are a great way to sharpen problem solving skills. Childrens brain are still evolving at a young age a creating new ways to problem solve so this is the perfect time to aid that progression with some tasks. These techniques are used from nursery up and beyond in the educational system, so an early and consistent support structure at home will boost progress in the class room and home, showing your support as a parent or guardian. Problem solving and reasoning will be a vital skill throughout any humans life. With issues in the work place, social challenges and everyday problem being undertaken by skills we have learnt as a child.
Children by their very nature are imaginative and creative people. With imaginary friends, made up games and so many other uses that tend to leave us as adults. Being highly impressionable at a young age, when given creative tasks and problems, these techniques are quickly seen in other tasks. With so many job roles these days that really on a creative mind, exercising these skills can only be a good thing.
Enhanced hand-eye co-ordination
Our brain and muscles have the ability to learn new skills and techniques. That is one of the main reasons schools and the military rely heavily on repetition. Practicing complex and interesting tasks will not only add fine motor skills, but will add confidence in every day and school life such as sports, thus increasing a childs physical health and social skills.
Boost confidence and self esteem
I have to admit to being rather competitive. There is nothing like the feeling of knowing you have completed a task by yourself and done so to a high level. Once again, this transfers in to the school scenario which remove barriers of lack of confidence that get in the way of learning. I was always taught from a young age, that doing a job well and seeing it through to the end is the best way to be, and I must admit that this lesson taught to me has stood me in very good stead throughout my life.
Being able to communicate comes easy to some children, and not so for others. Learning that asking for help and being able to concisely request the right support is a great skill to learn. Lots of children and adults struggle with this, because of an unhealthy fear of looking foolish, when asking for support is in fact the smart thing to do.
Children use skills such as adaptable thinking and deductive reasoning when using puzzles. This is done through trial and error of different pieces of the puzzle, ways that certain pieces fit together and why, and then trying to understand what piece goes next including planning ahead.
Persistence and patience is a skill that seems to be lost these days,and seem to want a reward without completing a challenge. With puzzles, try to give lots of praise when they have spent the time to finish the task, and instil a sense of self earnt accomplishment from there.
Fine motor skills
From a very young age, repetition in a task boost fine motor skills by increasing muscular strength and coordination. Holding the pieces in the correct way, and a steady hand is not easy for an untrained hand. This will cross over to kitchen knife skills as well and hand writing and so much more.
Encourage your children to work with yourself, friends or other family members to increase their social and vocabulary skills. It is not just the discussion of what piece goes where, but the other mundane chatter that gives a child the ability to fit comfortable into a social situation and thrive.
