Besides being fun, puzzles are an often overlooked educational tool. I’ve used puzzles to teach my children about the world. I also love using 4D Cityscape Time puzzles in our history lessons, as they allow children to see how historical events shape cities and countries.

I believe in hands on learning wherever possible, in all school subjects. So when I was offered the chance to review three new Dr. Livingston human body jumbo learning puzzles, I said yes. I knew these puzzles would be fantastic for teaching my children about the human body.

Using Puzzles to Teach Children About the Human Body

Martin Waddell’s picture book, Owl Babies, is one of our all-time family favorites. This timeless tale of three baby owls anxiously waiting for their mother to come home reminds me of how my own young children feel when I am gone. I was thrilled to hear it had been chosen as this week’s virtual book club pick. This book is very popular and should be in most libraries, but In My Tree is an adorable alternative book pick for this week’s theme. My kids helped me put together a fun printable to practice colors, and we are excited to try all the fun owl themed learning activities my co-hosts have come up with.

I created this very simple color matching printable activity. Just click on the image above to download the PDF. Your child can draw lines to match the owls with their nests. If you want the activity to last a bit longer, you can paint – with matching paint colors. My four-year-old love this watercolor set. You could also glue on pieces of colored yarn.

  1. I’m thinking cut the owls out and glue them on the nests. But that may be my dislike of the drawing lines to connect them because my kids never draw straight lines, but loop de loops and it turns into a big guessing game.

    We loved this book too! There is something about owls that appeal to all kids, I think!
