Innovative Kids Big Builder 60-Piece Floor Puzzle
(Innovative Kids $23.99)
Kids with a fascination for construction trucks will love this huge two by three- foot floor puzzle that features a fleet of trucks in a city setting. The sixty-piece puzzle is challenging and kids will need some strategies for getting it together. Bring their attention to the image on the box and the people who walk along the frame at the bottom. Suggest that they find the pieces of the buildings, start with one color and then move on to another. Is the Yellow building next to the green building? Where is the purple building going to go? Remember that kids put puzzles together many times, gaining levels of mastery with each attempt. Avoid taking over and doing it, but take the time to teaching them the ropes of how to go about problem solving. Puzzles are good tools for building their ability to stick to a task while dealing with frustration—a life skill that needs reinforcement. 5 & up.
