Activities to improve Logical thinking of your child
A. Strategy games:
One of the important problem-solving skills that we want to develop in our kid is logical thinking: ‘if this ... then what'. Strategy games are a great way to help children to develop this skill. Board games like Ludo, Snakes and ladder are quite useful at this stage.
Jigsaw Puzzles are good tools to develop logical thinking of the child. Beside normal jigsaw puzzles, you can also let your child play online puzzle games.
Asking questions in the form of quiz/ riddles will also be useful for kids. You can make your own riddles. E.g. I am an animal, I am black in colour and I am Big. Who am I!! Note it does not matter much, how structured is your sentence, it should trigger thinking in your child. Play many such ‘Who am I' game with your kid. Have fun
