Learning with the things we love makes for fun and easy lessons. Because we spend so much time in the kitchen as a family, I realized the amount of different ways I can help the kids learn as I multitask cooking and making sure the kids are Learning in the Kitchen 🙂 Here is a kitchen inspired Easy box puzzle DIY activity that helps little ones with abstract thinking, motor skills and delivers some fun times for everyone! Remember, education doesn’t have to be complicated 🙂
Easy Box Puzzle DIY: Learning in the Kitchen
Quick and easy, this activity can be as simple or complicated for the kids as you want it to be. So I use this with kids with ages that range from 1 to 10. This Easy Box Puzzle DIY is ready in under 5 minutes. You can do this with just about every box you have around in the kitchen. Here is how I did mine:
Easy Box Puzzle DIY
- empty candy box
- With a pencil trace the shapes of the puzzle pieces you want. Here is where you can strategize the level of difficulty you want.
- Cut the puzzle piece out
- Hand to the kids and have them put the puzzle back together!
The great thing about this is that you are also making the kids work their memory because you don’t have a sample from them to copy. They need to put the puzzle together remembering what the box looks like. Believe me, that is probably the easiest part of it all because the puzzle is of a product they recognize well
