What is a Floor Puzzle?
A floor puzzle is a large piece puzzle that children can assemble on the ground. Floor puzzles usually come in 24, 36, 48, and 64 pieces and are designed for kids aged 3 and up.
These are great for young children because the pieces are large and easy to hold. Floor puzzles are made of less pieces than a traditional puzzle.
Floor puzzles are a fun way for kids to practice fine motor skills, visual discrimination, and problem solving. Great for independent play or as a small group activity.
