Any other preschoolers terrible at puzzles?

    Any other preschoolers terrible at puzzles?

    I got my 4.5 year old daughter a few new 25 piece puzzles today. She eventually gave up, saying "They make puzzles because they want kids to be bored."

    She's pretty bright, but apparently not very good at spatial reasoning (DH can't do a puzzle to save his life, either). Even if I tell her a piece is an edge piece, she doesn't "get" that they edges have to go in a straight line, and when she finally gets a piece, it's either by luck or after exhausting all the other options.

    Any ideas on how to help her learn the critical thinking and spatial reasoning skills she needs to do them?
