Problem-solving skill is the ability to analyze problems and explore different options to solve them. Children display problem-solving abilities within a few month from the time they were born. From exploring things with their fingers and toes when they’re 4–9 months old to responding to simple games such as peek-a-boo with a big, adorable smile, there are many behaviours and activities that indicate a child’s problem-solving abilities at different ages. They always seem to find smart ways to overcome obstacles. These problem-solving abilities, also called cognitive skills, develop over time.
With the development of cognitive skills, the simple problem solving that begins early in a baby’s life changes into purposeful problem solving where the child uses specific approaches and intended actions to achieve the result.
Helping a child in developing problem-solving skills in early childhood has a great impact on the child’s growth.
Across different stages of their growth, infants, toddlers, and young children develop their cognitive abilities by exploring their everyday surroundings through experiences. There are many activities that can enhance this experiential learning. Some of the cognitive and creative development activities for preschoolers that can improve their problem-solving skills include the following:
While problem solving is an important survival skill for children, that not only help them solve their problems but also shape them as unique individuals. Some of the advantages of developing problem-solving skills are as follows:
Choosing problem-solving and creative development activities for preschoolers based on the child’s cognitive development—her or his ability to think, communicate, and solve problems—has far more benefits than only problem solving.
