I have some children who are challenged when it comes to simple board puzzles. So I'm passing along a little trick that I do to help these students feel successful.
First, you take the puzzle and dump the pieces so all you're left with is the plain inner board.
Then, you take one piece at a time, and as you place it back inside the puzzle, trace the piece with a permanent marker. Do this for the entire puzzle.
When you're finished, after you remove all the pieces, the back board now resembles the individual pieces and where they should go.
