Floor Puzzles

Do you and your children like to put together puzzles?  We’re always looking for good quality puzzles so they can be used over and over again.  Floor puzzles are great for those rainy days when a more quiet gross-motor kinesthetic activity is needed. Melissa and Doug Farm Friends Floor Puzzle is one puzzle on our playroom shelf that we’ve used many times.  After it’s put together we spend some time on quality conversation talking about the animals, naming them, and making up stories about what might happen on the farm.  Sometimes we pull out some of our farm animal books to further the discussion.  We hope you enjoy puzzles too!

*What's your favorite animal?
*Can you give names to the animals?
*What do you think is happening on the farm?
