Elmer the Patchwork Elephant My First Floor Puzzle – 16pc
Elmer the Patchwork Elephant has always been a Big name in our household just like I am sure it has with yours. We have had a small selection of the Elmer the Patchwork Elephant Children’s Books since the older 3 out of the 5 girls were toddlers.
My youngest Daughter Beast (almost 2) has followed suit of her sisters and thoroughly enjoys the Elmer stories, also with the bright and colourfully engaging illustrations has made Elmer popular with many young children.
What better way to get your Toddler or young children (2yrs +) involved with Elmer the Patchwork Elephant and begin a love of Jigsaw Puzzles.
The first few times we sat on the floor to piece this puzzle together, she got fairly frustrated. To start with she struggled to get the pieces to line up correctly and slot into place, but also because she is such an Independant Little…. erm… Monkey. She didn’t want the Help, she would rather attempt it on her own.
How did Beast get on with the Elmer the Patchwork Elephant My First Floor Puzzle.
Myself and Beast have had lots of fun with this Ravensburger My First Floor Puzzle. She isn’t 2 until November but still with encouragement and fun together we have used Elmer’s Patchwork colours to help Beast identify Colours.
She knows which colour Purple is now, think that may be a favourite colour Just like her Daddy – What is your Toddlers Favourite Colour?
When she finally did allow me to assist, and the few times following and now whenever we get the Elmer the Patchwork Elephant My First Floor Puzzle out she is super quick and efficient at piecing it together now. Beast has even progressed onto her Sister Pigs 4-in-1 Ravensburger Ben and Holly Puzzle.
What is good about this Elmer the Patchwork Elephant My First Floor Puzzle.
Ravensburger have integrated Elmer the Patchwork Elephant really well into this My First Floor Puzzle, aimed at Toddlers and young children. Not only is a Jigsaw such as this not only a fun and welcomed distraction for an active, crazy toddler. Offering you as a parent a window of opportunity to get on with some essential housework or even just to sit in a form of peace and enjoy a warm cup of tea/coffee.
A jigsaw puzzle like this also offers a great way for youngsters to develop and learn essential skills, also pretty fun too if you join in. Whilst joining in with your child working together with a jigsaw, use this window of opportunity to encourage your child to think about what is going on. What is happening in the image that is being created of the puzzle. What they may think might happen next, create a story from the puzzle.
Other essential and developmental skills a jigsaw can provide your child are –
- Hand-eye Co-ordination
- Problem Solving and concentration
- Language – A great way to discuss what colours, shapes and pictures in the puzzle.
- Colour and Shape Recognition.
