Luke Watson Capstone

For my Capstone project, I wanted to focus on the theme of child development. I thought the best way to base a project on this was to build a toy that helps a child develop different important qualities that they need. At first, I was going to build a balance bike because it helps with balance, becoming independent, and hand-eye coordination. I realized I did not have the proper tools in order to complete this project, so I decided to change it into a more simple puzzle that teaches kids pretty much the same things. Basically, the puzzle is a small board that has pegs on it, the kid has to put the correct shape on the correct peg. I thought of it as a suitable replacement for the balance bike because it helps children develop independence, hand-eye coordination, and fine motor skills. It also helps young kids with their shapes, colors, and numbers.
