Scrambled States of America
A while back, Jared and I purchased this puzzle for Emma. Emma loves puzzles, and we thought this one might be a fun way to introduce U.S. geography to her.
It ended up in the back of the closet for a while, but now with Emma's new interests in the states, we thought it might be a fun activity to do. I set it out the first day that we started working on the states, but there really wasn't any interest in it until yesterday. The story book that comes with the puzzle is really cute, Emma and I both enjoyed it.
Here is the puzzle put together.
Some of the puzzle pieces are shaped like states. Emma really like those pieces the best. She also seems to still enjoy putting the state pages together. She'll usually ask a few times a day if we can go work on them. I am not sure if it's because she likes the work, or because I am actually working on them with her, but either way, we both have fun and learn a lot at the same time.
This morning, Emma got a new floor puzzle from Gramma. After breakfast, Emma decided to write Gramma a thank you note.
Now we need to get ready to go hiking in a little bit.
Have a great day!
