Puzzles are not only great for brain development, whether it
be matching colours, sequencing shapes, recognising different sizes or problem
solving. Puzzles also provide a great opportunity for you to sit down and
interact with your child in a way that they will not only find fun, but will
help them to learn.
Rainbow is a great puzzle for children aged 2 and up. Made of solid
wood and made up in a rainbow of colours (pun intended!), it will also give
your child the opportunity to learn about balance, size, colour and sequencing
— all great concepts to further your child’s learning.
Sometimes the best toys are the simplest and when it comes
to puzzles, making sure it is age appropriate is important — there is no
point subjecting your child to the frustration of attempting to do something
that they are not yet ready to handle — feeling like they have
ëfailed’ won’t be fun for them or you. Patience and
encouragement are the way to go and puzzles like this will bring about a great
sense of achievement, equally important in their development.
child when you tell them how clever they are.
