Digging dirt, moving earth or just driving down the road, construction vehicles are captivating. This extra thick wooden puzzle includes six easy-grasp, chunky vehicle pieces. Each vehicle has a full-colour, matching picture underneath and can stand 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 place all the pieces in a line, either flat on the play surface or standing up (depending on the child's abilities).
  • Ask the child to point to all the machines that are red. Then, one colour at a time, ask the child to find machines that are yellow, blue and orange.
  • Line up the machines and count them aloud with the child.
  • Identify each machine, and describe the way it moves or works. (A cement mixer spins. A water truck carries a tank and rolls on lots of wheels. A bulldozer moves on tracks and pushes dirt with its dozer blade. An excavator lifts heavy rocks and dirt in its scoop. A truck has wheels and can carry big loads. A dump truck brings dirt, rocks and debris to a different place and dumps them in a pile.)
  • With all the pieces on the puzzle board, ask the child questions to make up a simple story about the construction site. For instance, "What do you think the machines are building here?" or "Which machine will finish its work first? Where will it go after the workday?"

Measures approximately 9” long and 12” wide.

Happy pets play in the yard on this extra thick wooden puzzle that includes eight easy-grasp, chunky pet pieces. Each pet animal can stand upright for pretend play and has a full-color, matching picture underneath. 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 each type of animal. How many cats are there? How many dogs?
  • Encourage the child to identify and discuss all the colors on the pieces. Do any pieces have more than one color? Do any pieces have colors in common?
  • Ask the child to identify the shapes on each animal piece (circles, stripes, swirls, triangles). Help the child to select different groups based on the shapes. For example, collect all the pieces with swirls and place them in a stack. Then return them to the puzzle board and stack all the pieces with circles or dots.
  • 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 each animal's name is?"

Extension Activities: More Ways to Play and Learn:

  • Ask the child to point to the correct animal when you give clues about its appearance. (For older children, place the animals face-down first!)
