Printable Puzzles Empowered Parents

There are so many benefits of puzzles in early childhood, such as improving fine motor skills or strengthening attention span.

Make sure that you offer these printable puzzles in addition to regular, wooden puzzles as they should never replace learning to build real puzzles (these are the best puzzles for toddlers and puzzles for preschoolers).

Also note that a child who can build a regular 8-piece puzzle might find these much more challenging as they don’t come in a wooden tray and they don’t physically fit together. 

Building these relies solely on visual perception and a child identifying pieces of a picture. The right number of pieces is a puzzle that is challenging but doable. Any more is just frustrating. 

Here is a list of all the puzzles in the printable PDF.

Printable 2-Piece Puzzles

There are eight 2-piece puzzles – a set of ocean-themed puzzles and a set of toy-themed puzzles.
