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
- 1 cup flour
- 1/4 cup salt
- 1 tsp cream of tartar
- 1 cup water
- 1 Tbsp oil
- Food coloring
- Mix the dry ingredients together.
- Add in the wet ingredients, whisking until smooth.
- Cook over medium heat until the play dough is nearly set (no longer sticking to the edges of the pan).
- Remove the play dough from the heat.
- Knead on a flat surface until cool.
- Store in a ziploc bag or airtight container.
Whisking all the ingredients until they are smooth before cooking makes all the difference with this recipe!

The girls set up this play dough bakery one morning while Johnny was at school. Lily especially enjoyed using these silicone ice cube trays from IKEA to make play dough biscuits. Amazon sells all sorts of fun silicone baking trays you can use for this.
