Pencil Control/Fine Motor/Scissor Skills
From early childhood right through to adulthood we love to play with puzzles. We like the way puzzles challenge our thinking and improve our concentration. Puzzles are also a good way to exercise your fingers, improving our fine motor skills as we work.
Like us you probably have lots of different types of puzzles at home. What is your favourite? Is it a puzzle with your favourite character on it? or Is it a puzzle with lots of pieces? A floor puzzle is always fun too.
Can you complete a puzzle at home? If it was easy to do do, can you find a more difficult one?
Take a look at the different puzzles you can do at home.
Who can complete this weeks puzzle challenge? Ask an adult to cut out the puzzle pieces on the first page then see if you can make the animals. It is tricky so take your time!
