Puzzles are a staple in any learning environment for preschoolers. They can be a challenge to store, as their pieces can fall out so easily. I've gathered some creative ways for you to organize the puzzles in your Early Childhood Learning Environment.
Many educators in the Pre-K Fun Community have found paper trays to be an easy way to organize their wooden puzzles.

Since paper trays can be stacked, you can customize the height you need so that
they fit inside your existing shelving units.

Using poly envelopes is a great way to store wooden puzzles. Simply slide them in, and the pieces stay together, making them easier to stack.
