Research suggests that playing with puzzles might have positive impacts on a child’s cognitive, physical and emotional development.

Fine motor skills

As children pick up, manipulate, grasp and place each puzzle piece they are developing fine-motor skills. Fine-motor skills are related to handwriting, drawing and typing abilities in later life. Motor ability has even been linked to IQ in school-aged children.

Hand-eye coordination

As the child coordinates what they see with where they must move their hands to place each piece correctly, they are developing hand-eye coordination. Hand-eye coordination is corelated with sporting ability, balance, handwriting and reading.

Problem solving skills

Jigsaw puzzles help build the foundations of important skills needed to overcome more complex problems in later life, including planning, goal setting and deductive reasoning. Each success in working through challenges and completing the puzzle also contributes to the child’s sense of self-efficacy. Self-efficacy supports children to build the self-confidence necessary to persevere through more challenging tasks in later life.

Emotional regulation

By dealing with frustrations as they work to fit the pieces through trial and error, children also develop emotion-regulation skills, such as patience and perseverance. Emotion-regulation in early childhood is predictive of later academic success.

Focused attention

Solving a puzzle requires concentration and focused attention. Puzzles can’t be cheated, teaching the child to slow down and attend to the details. Focused attention is a critical component of adult complex problem-solving ability.
