Many of us have always found something appealing about puzzles and the sense of satisfaction we get when we finish one. Whether it’s the feeling that we get when all of the pieces fall into place, or the realization of exactly how different what we have managed to make is from what we started off with initially. And it’s not just puzzles. A lot of people have been able to get much of the same feelings of accomplishment from picking up hobbies such as building model car kits.

The aforementioned feelings of accomplishment and pride regarding being able to construct and finish something on your own is much more prevalent in children. If they manage to finish a project on their own, or even with a little help, it could boost their self esteem, not to mention how it could help in other areas as well. For example dealing with the small pieces and their placement would allow them to increase both their hand-eye coordination and dexterity without them even noticing. And if they find themselves unable to finish a kit that they started, the child can simply get a little help from their parent, and in the process spend some quality time with them while subconsciously developing their own problem solving skills and cognitive abilities.
