Here is a quick way to make a homemade puzzle for little ones. This is a great activity because you can vary it so easily based on your child’s ability but tracing a few shapes or more shapes.
Grab a file folder or large paper. Trace around some objects from your kitchen i.e. cookie cutters, measuring cup, spoon or magnets.
When done, lay the objects around the border of the paper and see if your child can match up the objects to the outline. So simple to make but reinforces a child’s visual perceptual and fine motor skills.
Come back tomorrow for how to change up this activity for older children.
