Cardboard Puzzles

Use cardboard puzzles in a variety of themes to help children practice coordination and critical thinking while having fun. Puzzles from Melissa & Doug, Scholastic, and Carson-Dellosa combine learning with play. Pick out an age-appropriate puzzle to challenge a child's mind.

Brain-Boosting Challenge
Cardboard puzzles require concentration and memory skills, making them a fun way to potentially help improve the attention span of a small child. Solving challenging puzzles involves visual perception, spatial reasoning, and critical thinking, giving kids valuable practice using these vital skills. Using large puzzles in the classroom encourages cooperation between multiple students, so they can help kids become practice social interactions.

Fun Themes
Toddlers enjoy wooden puzzles with farm, vehicle, and animal themes that help them master the basics of placing puzzle pieces into the appropriate slots, while preschoolers can appreciate cardboard puzzles that reinforce basic concepts they are learning, such as shapes, numbers, and letters. Older kids may like puzzles with more complex themes and images, such as those featuring dinosaurs, detailed ecosystems, and cultural topics. Puzzle storage racks help you keep all the puzzles in your classroom organized and in one place, so kids can easily go back to a particular puzzle any time.

Integrated Lessons
Use cardboard puzzles as part of a lesson that incorporates multiple learning methods, including reading, lectures, and physical manipulation of puzzle pieces. Map puzzles seamlessly integrate into geography, history, and social studies classes, while alphabet puzzles help smaller children better visualize the letters they are learning. Puzzle sets that feature seasons, cultures, or careers help you go into a specific topic in depth by providing multiple images that students can discuss in class.
