These printable animal puzzles are designed to grow with your child abilities.

We recommend that you include one or a combination of the following activities prior to using the puzzle:

  1. Read a book that has the animal in the story or is the main character -- related literacy activities in the Rabbit Theme.
  2. Discuss some simple facts about the animal - visit this activity - Learning about Hares and  Rabbits.
  3. Mimic the movements or sounds that the animal might make - hopping.
  4. Give a special name that starts with the first letter in the animals  word.  This will make the animal puzzle more special to the child and reinforce the alphabet letter, for example:  Robby the Rabbit
  5. Ask what colors are in the animals body
After one of the above activities:
  1. Present the puzzle to the child and allow child to put together and show briefly the small image on the upper left corner of the template so the child has a glimpse of the finished puzzle.
  2. Alphabet practice:  Write the letter R r one or two times in each piece and ask the child to search for the hidden letters in the puzzle.  Review letter R rabbit lesson plan.
  3. Encourage child to store puzzle away after s/he is done (see recommendations for storage below)

Tips on how to store the puzzles:

  • Glue or tape the small image (in the left-upper corner of the template) to an envelope.  You can use those large left-over greeting card envelopes (from Christmas for example) usually these are bigger or create custom made envelopes by folding a piece of paper in half, close sides with tape.
