Toddlers are the best recitalists when it comes upon proactively learning something new or imaging something innovative. It is because; during early days a child’s mind functions like one delicate raw clay. The nourishment given by an adult shapes an everlasting character inside the kid’s mind. Therefore it is an adult’s responsibility to give their toddlers an optimum brain cultivating environment, which surround fascinating puzzles, mind dazzling riddles, pictorial crosswords and various creative brain teasing activities.
As a matter of fact, Bill Gates, the renowned and sensational co-founder of Microsoft Company was a big time puzzle and riddle lover during his childhood days. It is a proven verity that brain teasers for kids work like an enchantment on children. Different conundrums work on different skills like creativity, math skills, touch-feel-visual sensation,lingual’s, problem solving abilities, color and shape identification, hand and eye coordination and various others.
So to make my nation’s future more sharper, below are a few challenging but full-dose fun brain activities for our young toddlers.
