Puzzles, Games, & Manipulatives

If you have room setting up a separate area for puzzles, games, and manipulatives is a great idea. You can stock it with many great products. Often times this area is combined with the Math and Number Area because many of the activities offered in both areas can be integrated with each other. However, if you are fortunate enough to have the space, it would be nice to set up a separate area for these fine motor development activities.


Puzzles, games, and manipulatives offer children lots of practice with fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination, and logical thinking skills. These all help promote language, literacy, and fine motor development. 


To help keep this area organized label toys and store materials in see through bins or bags with pictures of what materials belong in them on the outside. This helps children when it is time to clean up and it build categorization skills. This area can be full of literacy rich centers as well. 



Stock this area with puzzles, small blocks and counters, lacing cards, and other toys that build small muscle skills.
