HOW DOYOU PLAY TANGRAM?

All 7 pieces of the Tangram must always be used - they cannot be overlapped or left out. For younger children, there are molds or templates with the outline of each figure which makes it easier for them to finish the task.When you want to increase the difficulty, only the outline of the figure is displayed, so the child must find the ideal way to arrange the pieces. However, you can also ask a child to form a figure freely to stimulate their creativity.

STIMULATES ANALYTICAL THINKING

El Tangram es un juego divertido y motivante, por lo que es ideal para mejorar la capacidad de atención y la concentración de los niños. De hecho, para resolver algunas de las figuras más complejas el niño necesitará tiempo y tendrá que prestar atención a las diferentes formas.

El Tangram es un juego perfecto para estimular las capacidades espaciales de los niños. Dado que tienen que resolver acertijos geométricos, este juego desarrolla el pensamiento espacial ya que los niños se van familiarizando con las formas, la simetría y las rotaciones en el espacio.

Cada rompecabezas no solo estimula las habilidades espaciales sino también el análisis. Poco a poco, los niños dejan de probar las diferentes formas y comienzan a manipularlas mentalmente usando, anticipándose a los resultados finales, lo cualles permite desarrollar el pensamiento abstracto.

El Tangram es un juego ideal para fomentar la creatividad. De hecho, no siempre es necesario utilizar modelos para resolver los acertijos, el niño también puede jugar a crear sus propias figuras, lo cual le abre un universo prácticamente infinito de posibilidades que estimula la fantasía y la creatividad.

El Tangram también se puede utilizar para potenciar la memoria. Si se muestra la imagen a resolver y luego se retira, el niño tendrá que poner en marcha su memoria de trabajo para mantener la figura-objetivo activa en la mente e irla comparando con sus progresos.
