National Geographic and Uncle Milton have teamed up to give us some great tools to enable our children to have fun while learning. Another plus is that they are making them available through 200 Barnes & Noble stores and BN.com to purchase easily.
One of the products now available is the Nat Geo Wild jigsaw puzzles. No doubt when you think of Uncle Milton’s products you first think of toys that introduce learning through discovery and fun. National Geographic no doubt conjures images of wild animals and educational experiences of learning about nature through the beautiful photography. This Nat Geo Wild jigsaw puzzle of ‘Big Cats’ will fulfill all the above and give anyone the pleasure of constructing three puzzles of big cats.
They come in wonderful tins with a beautiful picture of a tiger to keep the puzzle in to put together again and again or construct the three puzzles and keep them intact and use the tin for other treasures.
Puzzles are also educational tools that aid in components of learning success. Puzzles like these being offered by Uncle Milton and National Geographic aid in the learning processes of developing reasoning, sequencing, analyzing, deduction, problem solving and helps to develop logical thought as well.
Jigsaw puzzles also help in eye-hand coordination, spatial awareness and the physical hand manipulation required to put the jigsaw pieces together for the completed puzzle.
Another reason I like introducing puzzles to children as it encourages patience. So often we live in the age of ‘get it now’ and puzzles encourage a child to work at the process of putting together the puzzle in increments of time. A child benefits from the rewards of feeling good about themselves when they reach their goal of completing a project when they use their problem solving skills and patience.
Puzzles like these from the Nat Geo Wild series helps a child in wild cat recognition of name and appearance. I loved that they all came bagged separately in the same tin. It can be divided so more than one child can work on the puzzles independently or they can work as a team.
Once the puzzles are put together you have a quality photograph of a wild big cat from the jungle to keep in tact with puzzle glue and display or take apart to assemble again.
I’m so glad Miss B loves to put together puzzles and the quality of the educational aspects she gets from these jigsaw puzzles from Uncle Milton and National Geographic that is now available from Barnes & Noble.
You can find your choice of Big Cats or Majestic Mammals at Barnes & Nobles.
