Puzzles for Toddlers

Q: “I was talking to a friend who said that her daughter knows how to put a puzzle together. She is the same age as my daughter: 15 months. What kind of puzzle can a young child put together?”

A: You can find puzzles that have 3-6 pieces; some even have knobs on the pieces to make it easier for the child to move the pieces in and out of the openings. This kind of puzzle is different from the interlocking style puzzle an older child or adult will use.

Generally, the pieces are shapes, colors or animals—the perfect things to talk about with your daughter. You might find some examples in your local library.

Remember that every child is different, however, and if your daughter doesn’t yet show an interest in puzzles, that’s OK too.
