As far back as I can remember, I have loved putting together puzzles. One of my first early memories is that of putting together a puzzle. That love has successfully passed to our daughter as one of her early childhood memories is choosing a “children of the world” puzzle as part of the work cycle in her Kindergarten class at the Montessori school she attends. I have always known that puzzles are a great brain workout, but as I started researching the benefits of putting puzzles together, I was amazed at the true workout our brain gets putting a puzzle together. No wonder puzzles are such a popular pastime for both young and old.
The Within the Biomes - 48 pieces Giant rectangular puzzle by eeBoo, illustrated by Linda Bleck, is an excellent addition to the home or a classroom. This 30” x 26” floor puzzle has 48 glossy pieces made from recycled board and printed with vegetable inks; it depicts six different biomes that make up our earth. The puzzle does come with a 20” x 16” full-color poster identifying each animal on the puzzle.
What makes this puzzle so much fun?
Puzzles are just fun! And the illustration of each biome is vibrant and interesting; each time you build the puzzle, you will notice something different.
Playing with puzzles has a significant impact on a child’s development, including:
Fine Motor Ability
Gross Motor Skills
Problem Solving Skills
Puzzles are a great way to get children involved in an activity that doesn’t have a screen!
