Want to develop your child creativity, memory, spatial, critical and motor skills? My Favorite Animal Jigsaw Puzzles can do just that!
This amazing animal jigsaw puzzles is so colorful and cute that you just can’t resist playing with it.
It is one of the best jigsaw puzzles. And what I love about this toy is that it is made of wood – durable and environmental friendly! I had so much fun playing with my 5-year old child because we could create loads of interesting games.
I started off with fitting all the funny shapes into the puzzle box.
As I go along, I ask my boy what the animals are – what is this long neck animal with brown dots smiling at us?
After that I mess up the pieces and told him that we can use the pieces to make shapes like a square, a triangle or a rectangle.
I played with him to show him the many possibilities to make a square using just 2, 3, 4 or 5 pieces.
Do you know educationists encourage this to develop divergent thinking, think differently to find a solution.
MORE INTERESTING SHAPES
This is why this is one of the best jigsaw puzzles which gives you endless fun. You just don’t stop at just basic shapes! My boy built a house, a car and even a dog with the pieces. He really amazes me with his creativity! It is like a tangram at work!
STORY TELLING TOO
Hey, I went beyond just building shapes, I told him a silly story too! To encourage him to love reading.
“Once upon a time, there was a furry haired LION, who carried his best friend DOG to visit his sick buddy, the big brown BEAR who swam the ocean with naughty RACCOON and tricked the clever FOX to play kungfu with PANDA and try digging the garden with the MOLE and water the flowers with the big mouth HIPPO.”
I just could not stop playing with my boy. I used the silly story and ask my boy to recall how many animals and must be in sequence too! And you know what, he could recall all the 8 animals and in sequence too! What a feat!
But I have to act out the story too with my growls and acrobat somersaults.
When I felt the energy draining out from me, I told my still energetic excited boy to create and act out a story instead! And you guess it right, I did not switch role to recall the animals. I mess up the animal cubes and ask him to arrange the blocks in sequence!
While I rest on my sofa!
And you know what, after all I have been through, my husband nicknamed me the TIGER MUM! See what he has to say when our boy graduates to be a doctor!
