Animals Matching Puzzle (40 big pieces)
This puzzle is simply amazing for young kids! Each of the 40 large puzzle pieces has a realistic image of an animal, either an adult or its baby against an illustrated background, and the name of each one is labeled on the puzzle piece under the animal. As children work to use the pieces to create 20 two-piece puzzles made up of the adult and baby of each kind of animal, they learn about matching adults to their adorable babies as well as the names of animals and their young. In addition to these things, the puzzle includes 20 “color me” backs on the puzzle pieces, which means that kids can work a puzzle, learn more about animals, and color a picture all in one box! This product helps kids learn about STEM and develop literacy skills, and it also involves multiple levels of learning.
Fun and educational color, picture and word animal matching puzzle. Enjoy puzzling with your little one to learn about animals! Match the parent animals with the baby animals. For a different challenge, match the animals on the backs of the pieces without colors for a visual reference. "Color me" backs assist in fine motor skills. Graduated learning makes the educational value last longer as a kid grows.
