Polar Animals Mega Bloks Puzzle: Preschool math activities
Well, how yawl doing guys? I hope that you enjoyed your Holidays! We enjoyed ours and we are super excited to start back with our #Playfulpreschool Weekly Wednesday posts. Last month the Playful Preschool team covered Reindeers, Evergreen Trees, Lights, and their Best of Preschool posts.
Today we’re sharing Polar Animals. My preschooler had fun with this simple to put together a puzzle. She loves puzzles! So I thought it would be fun to put together a puzzle for her using some Mega Bloks and a print out that I got from MyCuteGraphics.

This idea was inspired by YouTuber Educational Toys & Activities hosted by Jada A.
What I used
- Mega Bloks
- Print out of a penguin and a polar bear or any image and cut it out
- Tape (I used an Ad Tech tape )
- Clear tape
- Knife, blade, whatever sharp pointy tool you have handy
To put this puzzle together
- Made a tower from the Mega Bloks, big small it doesn’t matter, just make sure it’s bigger than your image.
- Made sure that my images fit on the tower, one on the front and one on the back
- Used my Ad Tech tape on the back of the first image and taped it to the front side. Repeat for opposite side.
- Then I took my knife and sliced the paper between Mega Bloks so they could be separated.
- Took it apart and made sure that both my images were still firmly attached, then took my clear tape and taped each piece of the images to each Mega Bloks.
I played around with the puzzle to see if I liked it, and I liked it. I laid it out along with a small print out of the images on the Mega Bloks for my preschooler to play with in the morning
She woke up that next morning and did her calendar time work, then when she went to play with the playdough that’s when she noticed it. She looked at the pieces and noticed that they had parts of the images attached on both sides of the Mega Bloks. After examining the pieces she began to put them together.
She really liked that there were two different sides to her puzzle. So I’m kind of glad that I went with my first mind. You can ,ale this for your toddler also, just use two blocks instead of multiples.
