When you have kids, cold winter months require plans of action, not to mention snap activities for surprise snow days and sick days. Puzzles for kids are one smart solution because they’re brain-stimulating, super affordable and don’t involve screens. The best part for parents: You can put puzzles together as a family, let kids problem-solve on their own or do a little of both! Here are the best puzzles to keep everyone entertained.
This colourful floor puzzle is a hands-on way to help preschoolers learn their letters. Work together to name the silly characters and their letter-themed puzzle objects (Alligator and apple; Bear and bow tie, etc.) to further kids’ alphabet recall.
With thick wooden pieces for little hands to grasp and turn, small kids who love Ryan’s World will enjoy building this scene of Ryan’s favourite things: pizza, food trucks and his best animal pals.
This beautiful wooden alphabet fits seamlessly into any nursery décor. Before you know it, toddlers will want to busy themselves by fitting each letter into its corresponding holder. That’s your cue for fresh coffee, mama!
Not your average Disney Princess compilation, this kid-friendly puzzle puts a “cool” spin on Frozen‘s beloved characters including Elsa, Anna, Kristoff and Hans—not to mention Olaf and Sven. It’s a fun, kitchen-table kind of activity.
Rebuild that magical moment when everything came together thanks to a Fairy Godmother, who dressed Cinderelly and sent her off to Prince Charming’s ball. Bippity boppity boo! (And if your child’s obsessed with princesses, they might love these 20 cool fashion and princess dolls.)
