    Default Puzzles for 3 yr old girl?

    Recommend your puzzles for a 3 yr old girl. I've tried a few with 20 pieces or so, but she seems to get fed up with them and gives up. I probably need to sit with her more and do them, but I don't.

    Which ones do you have?

    thanks!

    We have some of the larger (maybe 50 piece) M&D floor puzzles. There are more pieces but the pieces are really big. DD seems to like these better than the ones with smaller pieces.

    These were all favorites at our household after age 2:

    Any of the Crocodile Creek puzzles:

    It seems to take a little effort initially to explain border pieces and show a little strategy like finding all of the pieces of the elephant but once they take off it's awesome to watch their little brains work.

    My DD is 2 and loves the 24 piece puzzles from Melissa and Doug. She can do them very easily because they have a wooden border/frame. She has a harder time with puzzles that do not have a frame around them, even 12 piece ones. The ones posted above are the ones we have. There is also a teddy bear one that is easier, because it is broken into 6 different "pictures" within the 24 pieces.

    Here is the link to the M&D 24 piece puzzles. http://www.melissaanddoug.com/24-pie...jigsaw-puzzles
    As you can see, the last 2 are "easier" because of the way they are broken down into sections.

    When she was younger she really liked these puzzles from Lakeshore Learning.
