Insects Chunky Puzzle - 7 Pieces
Suitable from 2+ years

 

This wooden puzzle includes a glorious garden full of bright and colourful bugs! The chunky wooden pieces slot easily into their recessed spots, or stand upright for pretend play.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

    Ask the child to line up the pieces, and count them out one by one together.
    Ask the child to identify all the colours on the pieces. Then discuss different ways to sort the bugs by their colours and patterns. For instance, you could select all the animals with red colouring and place them in a set. Or select all the animals with spots.
    Identify each bug and talk about how they move. (For instance, explain out that a spider can crawl or swing on his silk, a ladybug can fly or crawl, and so on.) Ask the child to point to all the animals with wings.
    Place the pieces around the room, then have the child venture off on a bug hunt. Each time the child finds a bug, ask him/her to call out the name and return it to the puzzle board.
    With all the pieces on the puzzle board, ask the child questions to make up a simple story about the bugs. For instance, "If we were planting in the garden, what bugs would we see?" or "What would it be like if these bugs all came to a party at our house?"
