All the Love for Layer Puzzles

Gus is in a very interesting puzzle phase right now. He can do simple jigsaw puzzles but doesn't quite have the fine motor skills to do those with a lot of smaller pieces. The larger jigsaws are fun for him but take up a lot of room. So to add challenge and interest for him, I've included one of our favorite layer puzzles on his work shelves

This particular puzzle has been discontinued, but it got me thinking about how fun and innovated layering puzzles are for kids. They can be really simple (if you only include one layer) or move to more complicated. But typically they aren't jigsaws which make them a great intermediate step since they don't need quite as much fine motor precision.

Plus they come in a variety of themes, sizes, and over all complexity - making them a really unique and fun addition to your child's work shelves. And, for some reason, the content of the puzzles also tends to be Montessori friendly, bonus! Here are a few Montessori friendly choices that I love:
