I know some boys love doing puzzles at home - he is a quick idea of how to make one if you have run out of puzzles at home!!
Simple and fun way to practice sight words, numbers, letter recognition, amounts, quantities or whatever you would like.
Simply get a sheet of paper and write words, letters, numbers, sums, etc and then get some sticky labels and repeat. Cut them up and either leave them all out for children to scan and choose a word or hand them to the child one at a time.
Children have to peel off stickers and stick over the matching word. As they get better you could introduce a timer.
Great for visual perception, matching, reading skills/number skills and fine motor skills 😃
