Puzzles can have a profound impact on your child's development. Puzzles develop your child's critical-thinking skills crucial for mastery of other skills. Puzzles can also help children with pattern recognition, memory, and both gross and fine motor skills.

Word puzzles for kids are especially useful as they help them improve spellings, children’s processing speed, memory, extend their vocabulary, encourage problem solving and help in academics and general development. Anagrams are a fun way to solve word puzzles. Anagrams are words or phrases formed by rearranging the letters of a different word or phrase, typically using all the original letters only once.
