Puzzles

Wooden puzzles are not just entertaining toys; they also serve as powerful educational tools, aligning seamlessly with Montessori principles and providing parents with an effective means of incorporating this educational philosophy into their school or home environments.

Montessori education emphasizes a child-centric approach, promoting self-directed learning, independence, and the development of essential life skills. Wooden puzzles, with their tactile nature, simplicity, and versatility, prove to be valuable assets in fostering these principles.

Why do we prefer wood over plastic? Montessori education promotes an appreciation for the environment and natural materials. Choosing eco-friendly toys reinforces the importance of respecting the environment and instills responsible consumer habits in children.

Wood has different textures and weights that captivate the interest of young children, who are naturally drawn to tactile experiences.  Also, the feel and weight of wood give young children a practical way to understand the size and weight differences between objects. It helps in understanding that larger pieces generally carry more weight compared to smaller ones, a concept you won't find in plastic toys.
