Last week on the blog, we covered the many different reasons why we LOVE Unit Block activities and projects. This week, we’ll cover another favorite: puzzles. As one of the first toys a child plays with, and one of the most educational, these pieces can help your child sharpen a number of important skills over time; such as hand-eye, fine motor, and visual perception.
To introduce puzzle week, we have rounded up a few videos from Melissa that describe her inspirations behind a few of the puzzle formats Melissa & Doug creates.
