All you need to know about puzzles for children

The game of patience involves putting pieces together to reconstruct an illustration. Children's puzzles should be age-appropriate.

How do you choose a jigsaw puzzle for your child?

How do you choose the right jigsaw puzzle for your child's age?

There are many factors to consider before buying a jigsaw puzzle for your child:

  • Age;
  • Size and number of pieces;
  • The illustration and theme;
  • The colours.

1 year old: wooden jigsaw puzzle

Wooden build-in puzzles are shock-resistant and can be used over and over again. In general, their pieces have buttons that make them easy to grasp. So children won't have any trouble positioning them on the board.

Choose animal or vehicle themes to attract the attention of young children. Choose a Djeco puzzle, for example.

2-year-olds: cube puzzles

Puzzles for 2-year-olds are generally made of cardboard or wooden blocks. They're easy to handle, as all you have to do is turn them to put the picture together. With a Janod or Djeco puzzle, you can reproduce six different drawings.

Children aged 3 to 5: silhouette puzzles

Puzzles suitable for children aged 3 are silhouette puzzles. They are made up of between 12 and 35 pieces with beautiful illustrations. For children aged 5, puzzles with 50 to 100 pieces are more suitable.

Djeco puzzles come in several themes:

  • Princesses ;
  • Pirates
  • Firefighters
  • Knights
  • Dinosaurs ;
  • Fairies ;

To help your children have fun and develop, choose these educational toys.

Puzzles for 6-year-olds

For children aged 6, observation puzzles with 150 to 300 pieces are adapted to their intellectual capacity. These are great gifts to impress even the most inquisitive toddler.

Puzzles for 7-year-olds

A jigsaw puzzle for 7-year-olds generally contains between 300 and 500 pieces. They're great for developing concentration and patience.

Puzzles for children aged 8, 9, 10 and over

For children aged 8, a jigsaw puzzle with more than 500 pieces is suitable for their level. You can give a young player a 3D model. For children aged 8 and over, put away the scooter, early years toys, etc. and encourage your child's agility and alertness. For example, they can play at putting things together:

  • A classic puzzle with a large number of pieces;
  • A miniature or XXL puzzle;

For children aged 10, Djeco, Janod, Ravensburger, etc. puzzles are among the best gifts to give.

An educational game for children's development

Puzzles help to develop :

  • Fine motor skills
  • Skill ;
  • Hand-eye coordination
  • Patience
  • Self-confidence.

Like chess, they also help children to develop a sense of logic. However, you need to choose the right models.

To reconstruct a picture :

  • Start with the outline;
  • Identify the colours;
  • Reconstitute the coloured areas;
  • Finish with the parts that are difficult to place.
