My children just love doing jigsaws. They are the best gifts for children with enquiring minds. Both of my older two will spend hours sitting at the dining table doing and redoing jigsaws. As they get more proficient they are able to manage with less help from me.
Here is a list of some of the Best Jigsaws for 2-4 year olds. I have found them so you don’t have to spend time searching, and can spend more time actually doing them.
