Lifecycle Layer Puzzle Butterfly

Type: Wooden Toys

A layered wooden jigsaw puzzle that teaches curious children about the life cycle of the butterfly. Assemble four layers using a colourful puzzle template to discover how a caterpillar turns into a butterfly.

I have this same puzzle in my teaching resources in my preschool classroom and my students love it. Sometimes layered puzzles can be quite complex and tricky, but this puzzle is just perfect. It supports young children in developing their understanding of the life cycle of a frog, and it is the perfect mix of challenge and achievable. 

Busy little hands can piece together the smooth chunky puzzle pieces to discover how a little egg, hatches into a caterpillar and then turns into a butterfly!

Pull apart each puzzle layer to reveal a new lifecycle stage below. From the eggs to the hatching caterpillar to the butterfly. Each layer of the jigsaw puzzle shows a different cycle.
