We had a birthday party this Saturday, and Anna got a lot of new toys. So far her absolute favorite is this Your Body Puzzle. I learned about this toy from Susana at My Family My Forever. It’s not terribly complicated – each layer of the puzzle (organs, muscles, skin and clothes) has 7 pieces, and Anna very quickly figured out how to assemble them. She did it at least 10 times over the weekend, and she always looks very proud when she is done. I am excited too, because she didn’t display a lot of interest in puzzles previously. She would do them with me, but never independently. I also credit Anna’s school for her increased interest in puzzles – they always have “puzzle station” in the morning, and Anna usually heads right there when she comes to school. I am looking forward to a lot of puzzles as she gets older, I loved them as a child myself and can’t wait to do them with her.
