This puzzle has proven itself as one of the favourites among children! This unique mosaic consists of 12 windows divided into 4 parts. Each window has its own hand - painted picture. The base under the pictures as well as the other side of the puzzle pieces are painted in corresponding colours.
There are several tasks to solve, starting from the easiest, to hardest: * Pour all puzzle pieces in a pile and sort them by colour; * After that - put the puzzle pieces back into the frame. It might not seem difficult at first yet the child has to think about both colour and shape of each unique puzzle piece, which is not quite easy at this age; * An even bigger challenge is putting together pictures outside the frame, without it’s help.
This game develops: * Logical thinking, * Understanding of colours, * Systematization skills, * Understanding of the concept “a part” and “a whole”.
Psychologists consider puzzles to be a very good game for supporting children's development because: 1. The game is not aggressive / violent, 2. It develops imaginative thinking, teaches to correctly perceive the connection and concept between a part and a whole, 3. Imperceptibly teaches the child to concentrate with the help of his own will, 4. Gives parents the opportunity to notice any early signs of difficulties or complications the child has (for example, the child has difficulties learning colours, does not know how to distinguish sizes, shapes etc.)
