Are you struggling with ideas of things to do with your kids during this time of social distancing? Puzzles are a great activity that can be simple for the very littles or more complex for the older kids. Not only do puzzles provide for “something to do,” but they are therapeutic too! Did you know that puzzles help develop visual perceptual skills? As a child is searching for that one piece, he/she is utilizing visual scanning and discrimination skills; as they place that piece, they use (and develop) visual motor, fine motor, and manipulation skills. Working together also develops social skills, cooperation, and attention skills. So when you struggle with what to do with your kiddos, think puzzles; you might even find that you enjoy it too!
