Jigsaw Puzzles for 7 year olds

An 100 pieces jigsaw puzzles is a nice sized puzzle for a 7 year old. They are challenging enough to engage 7 year olds but not so hard they loose interest. Some 7 year olds may be able to attempt and complete 200 piece puzzles but if you are unsure go for 100 pieces.

Puzzles are so educational. They help children focus and concentrate and give a sense of achievement of task completion. They can be worked in a group, encouraging the use of co-operative skills or they can be worked on independently. They give children an understanding of spacial awareness and of how things fit together.

There are lots of different types of jigsaw puzzles for 7 year olds including giant floor puzzles (some featured below are up to 4 feet long), learning puzzles that help kids learn history and geography, 3D puzzles and puzzle balls.
