Sea Creatures Chunky Puzzle - 7 Pieces
Suitable from 2+ years

A whale, a shark and an octopus are just three of the seven easy-to-grasp sea creatures in this extra-thick wooden puzzle. The chunky pieces, each with a full-colour, corresponding picture underneath, can come out of the depths for fun, pretend play. Encourages and hones hand/eye coordination, fine motor skills and creative expression skills.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

    Ask the child to line up the pieces, and count them out one by one together.
    Encourage the child to identify and discuss all the colours on the pieces. Do any pieces have more than one colour? Do any pieces have colours in common?
    Help the child to line up the animals from smallest (starfish) to biggest (whale). Then ask the child to stack the pieces together in a tower, with the biggest piece on the bottom.
    Ask the child to look closely at each animal's face and tell you how the animal is feeling. Help the child to think about why each animal might be feeling the way it does. For instance, "Why is the shark angry? I think he missed his lunch!"
    With all the pieces on the puzzle board, ask the child questions to make up a simple story about their lives. For instance, "Do these animals like to play together? What game will they play today?" or "What do you think would happen if these animals had a race?"
