What Children Learn From Giant Knob Puzzle Pets

While playing with this pets knob puzzle, children learn basic skills of daily living. And lay the foundation for future learning. Social skills develop when parent and child work together. They communicate, cooperate, take turns. The adult  names the animals. Shares information about each one, such as where the animal lives. This builds cognitive and language skills.

Children sometimes become frustrated while playing with puzzles. Parents support emotional development by offering encouragement. And by working with the child to figure out possible solutions. Patience, persistence, and pride in accomplishing a challenging task begin to blossom. When these tactics fail, call a recess. No blame, no shame. The child learns an important life lesson. When overwhelmed by frustration – or any emotion, immediately take a break. Do something else. Then return to the task. Successful problem solving often requires such “re-grouping”.

Puzzle play builds essential fine motor skills. Picking up a puzzle piece involves the small muscles in the fingers, hand, and wrist. Also eye-hand coordination. Practice builds muscle memory so that over time the movements become easy. Fitting pieces in place develops spatial awareness, abstract thinking, and deductive reasoning.
