Augmented reality works on any phone with a back facing camera. We believe that with technology changing so rapidly children should be gradually introduced to the newest thing. This way when they are adults they will have the general knowledge of how the technology works.



Rhymes
Rhymes are an excellent way for children to learn a language and build their vocabulary. Wordplay is often repetitive and catchy, which helps children easily recall a word or meaning. Rhymes help children learn phonetics, often rhymes repeat difficult sounds which in-turn helps improve their speech.

 


Picturebook. In this chapter, your child will have to place the images in order to make the story in the picture book. These activities help children understand time and processes. You need to plant the seed before you can water the flowers.

Picturebooks play a large role in childhood development. They help a child comprehend what is being said in the story. It is an excellent way to hear, read and relate to new words. They are often repetitive and rhyme which helps children remember keywords and scenes.

Picturebooks are multi-sensory which stimulates the imagination. When they see the illustrations, smell and touch the pages, they become completely immersed in the story.

Puzzles can be so much fun for children and adults, they come in all shapes and colors, with many different themes. It is no wonder children absolutely love playing with puzzles. Not only do they provide hours of entertainment they are also a valuable source for educational development.

1. Sharpen Cognitive Skills 

Cognitive skills are the core skills your brain uses to think, read, learn, remember, reason, and pay attention. When playing with puzzles a person needs to utilize these skills, practicing and sharpening them, all while having fun.

Playing with puzzles increases their visual-spatial awareness and develops a deeper understanding of these themes and topics.

2. Develop Fine Motor Skills

When children play with puzzles, they are required to pick up, grasp, pinch and move pieces around, sorting them into the correct places.

3. Hand-eye Coordination 

Along with developing fine motor skills puzzles are a great way to help in developing hand-eye coordination. Often puzzles require a lot of trial and error, requiring a child to move and manipulate the piece into place. This requires a lot of hand-eye coordination.

4. Problem Solving

What is the point of doing a puzzle? To complete it of course! Whether it be a 12 piece puzzle or thousands of pieces puzzles are all about trial and error.

When children are playing with puzzles, they must think and develop strategies on how they will complete the puzzle. This process requires cognitive skills such as reasoning and problem-solving skills, developing solutions. These are life skills they will take with them to their adulthood.

5. Persistence & Patients 

Puzzles can take a lot of time, effort and concentration. With some puzzles being over a thousand pieces and very complicated, being able to push through and complete the puzzle teaches a child that with persistence and patients they can achieve any goal.

6. Social

Puzzles are a great way to bring people together. Working together to develop a strategy, and cooperating together to complete a puzzle helps to develop many social skills. Nothing brings people together more than completing a common goal.

7. Self Esteem

Nothing boost self-esteem and self-worth more than accomplishing a goal. For children having something tangle-able to look back and say “Hey I did that” provides such a great sense of pride and achievement within themselves.  Working around issues and overcoming challenges boost their self-confidence and self-esteem, preparing them for other challenges in life.

Puzzles are not only a great source of fun but provide so many educational benefits! Have fun puzzling!
