J is for jigsaws

Another back to basics post and we’re on J is for Jigsaws. Here are some simple ideas for jigsaw play – Jigsaw play helps children in so many ways with attention span, working on problem solving and also how to deal with challenges.

Store brought puzzles

We have simple jigsaw puzzles ranging from ones with pictures underneath the pieces to upto 10 piece more traditional puzzles at the moment. They live in a box and at least once a day the box will come out. It helps with quiet time in the house and J in particular is starting to get how to do the bigger puzzles and more complex ones as well.
