There was once a time wherein I got so addicted to puzzles, any kind actually. Be it jigsaw, crosswords, numbers, cubes, Sudoku and many others. I’d bring the then current puzzle fave anywhere and I’ll do it to pass time while waiting for the teacher or my boyfriend. I can even finish several puzzle books in a week coz I was so crazy about it.
Now, my boys are also into puzzle. I think, they got it from me, lol. My 5 year old can finish a 100 piece jigsaw puzzle under 5 minutes! My 13 year old can also finish a crossword in no time. I am amazed actually coz I wasn’t like that when I was a kid. I was more into dolls and guns, lol.
Puzzles are great for honing skills like eye-hand coordination, strategy, sequencing, patience and more. It’s also an educational game because your child will learn at their own pace and space.
Why don’t you try it sometimes, more so if you are impatient. You’ll soon learn to be patient and it can also relieve stress.
