Puzzle box game for toddlers

Puzzle box game for toddlers

While in the process of getting my preschool ready for our first day, my little tag-along decided to try out all of our puzzles…

Sitting on the table along with the puzzles was a wooden Kleenex box that we plan to used in our classroom.  I dropped a puzzle piece in the box first and the puzzle box game began…

My grandson stood at the table and dropped every single puzzle piece he could in the box.  I think he stood there for about 15 minutes just adding adding blocks. Then he would lift the box and start again…

If a piece didn’t fit quite right, he would continue to push it around until he either got it to drop in the box or it fell off the edge…

Most of the pieces fit easily into the opening of the box. I really enjoyed watching as my grandson worked those puzzle pieces into that box…

My grandson hasn’t quite figured out how to get the puzzle pieces back onto the puzzle boards but he’s got the puzzle in a box game down!

    Hi Deborah,
    I love your blog. There are so many creative and exciting ideas for early childhood. I work for a small woman owned company that provides materials for early childhood. Would you consider using our company instead of amazon? All the best and I really like your work.

    My toddlers love to play with empty Kleenex boxes. They will fill them with blocks or cloths and then dump them out to begin again. Your puzzle box looks very inviting for little hands!

    I love when we can use simple things and kids just find their own way of using them to learn. Vicky from http://www.messforless.net
