Sturdy wood construction puzzle features easy-grasp, chunky pieces with colorful graphics. The chunky wooden pieces slide easily into their recessed spots, or stand them upright for pretend play. Encourages hand-eye, fine-motor and creative expression skills.

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:
*Ask the child to line up the pieces, and count them aloud together.
*Ask the child to identify all the colors on the pieces. Then discuss different ways to sort the bugs by their colors and patterns.
*Identify each of the bugs and talk about how they move. (For instance, point out that a spider can crawl or swing on his silk, a ladybug can fly or crawl, and so on.)
*Place the pieces around the room, then have the child walk around 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?"
