Let's Play: Puzzle Play

"Children are great imitators, so give them something great to imitate."


Puzzle Play:

Collect the puzzle pieces. Offer two to your toddler and ask which one he wants first. (Ex. Cow or horse?) If your child is not yet imitating words, you can model the sounds the animals make, and your child can choose by imitating the sound. After he chooses, give him the piece to put in the puzzle. Continue until the puzzle is complete. Don't forget, make it silly and fun! The more engaging you are, the more your child will be interested in participating.


This activity addresses the following developmental skills: Sound/word imitation, making choices, fine motor skills
