What our experts think
Jigsaw puzzles such as this promote logical thinking as children learn to look for edges or match colours. They are also a great tool for scaffolding – parents or other adults can give just as much help as needed by positioning pieces near their correct position and gradually withdrawing support. This method of learning helps boost confidence for shy or anxious children as they don’t get disheartened by getting it wrong.
