Interest Area - Puzzle Play Overview:

Puzzles enable a child to develop problem solving skills on how to place a piece in the correct space, cognitive skills through visual space awareness, fine motor skills to learn how to grasp and pick up pieces through manipulation, hand/eye co-ordination by placing puzzle pieces in correct order and social skills by completing puzzles with peers.

The Puzzle Play template is for a child's portfolio and consists of a typical interest area that you may have set-up in your service setting. It enables you to add 3 images of the child playing in the specific area as well as a description to accommodate the photos. It also has the benefits the child gains through playing within  the interest area as well as a tick box to Link to The Curriculum (Outcomes, Principles and Practices). The template also features a colour theme and clip art images for that particular interest area. 

This template is great to add to a Portfolio to help Parents understand that playing with puzzles benefits a child. It includes: 

  • Date
  • 3 images boxes
  • Description box
  • Check boxes for Outcomes, Principles and Practices
  • Logo
