Jigsaws have benefits including:

  • improving spatial skills and shape recognition
  • developing memory and patience
  • supporting problem solving and reasoning
  • providing opportunities for maths talk (counting pieces, 'How many pieces have been put together?' 'How many still left to do?' Estimations etc)
  • helping gross motor, fine motor and hand eye coordination 
  • relaxing 

The pictures below show how children can make their own jigsaw with a cereal box.
