We were given this puzzle as a gift this past Christmas. I thought I would have to hold on to it for a while since it might be a little difficult still for our 3 year old. But, I was also excited since we love fun things that also have a learning component, which this gift DEFINITELY includes!
We busted it out anyways and I am so glad that we did! Of course he needed some help. The pieces are not like regular puzzle pieces. The border locks together like a regular puzzle but the states “sit” next to each other. Once we got the outside together we worked together on the states. We loved that they were different colors and definitely appreciated that each state had a picture of something that represents the state.
It is a great way to practice the states. For D’s age, I really liked it to introduce how the country is made of states and how we fit in over here in PA. We were also able to point out our close relatives and where they live.
Well?? Would I recommend it??
We loved it and it will remain part of our “curriculum” for a long time. I can definitely see being able to use it for multiple activities. Recommend!
Thanks, Aunt Stacey!!
