What is my child learning?
-Numbers (kids are visually seeing the numbers, how they are written and their order)
-Cognitive skills (thinking, analyzing the puzzles, coordinating colors)
-Fine motor skills (picking up the popsicle sticks)
These puzzles are fun and so great for the development! I usually hand these puzzles out if I need my older one (4) to work independently so I can get something done and it works great!
