If there ever was a superpower that every parent would want their children to have, it would be the ability to think creatively and tackle problems with confidence. There can be no better way to give them this superpower than to teach them the basics of solving puzzles and problem-solving at a young age.
Solving puzzles and problem-solving will provide your kids with a wide array of skills and habits that will help them in adulthood; such as developing their capacity for independent thinking, problem-solving ability, and better decision making skills. So here are a few helpful tips to help you teach your kids the basics of puzzle and problem-solving:
1. Start out simple: Begin with puzzles designed for kids their age level and slowly make your way up to the harder ones. This way they can slowly build up their problem-solving skills, as well as their confidence.
2. Keep it fun: Puzzles and problem-solving can get tedious, so keep it light and fun by including some rewards along the way; like a puzzle related game or an extra allowance for completing the challenge.
3. Take it outdoors: Try to find ways to make puzzles and problem-solving interactive, like incorporating nature and playing outside. This way your kids are having fun while still learning without the pressure of a “grown-up” exercise.
4. Encourage teamwork: Try to find puzzles and problem-solving tasks that include more than one person, like a game of tag or creating a puzzle together. This will help teach them team building skills and understanding the importance of teamwork when solving a problem.
5. Explain and show: explain the problem but let them take the lead, while you observe and provide support and guidance along the way. If they get stuck, show them how you would personally solve it and then explain why, so that they can get better at understanding why certain problem-solving methods are better than others.
