British Native Buttefly puzzle at How we Montessori (3)

This is a gorgeous Native British Butterflies Board Puzzle. It has small knobs which are perfect for practising the pincer grasp. It shows the Caterpillar underneath the native British Butterfly. I love the Caterpillars so much, we see many different types of Butterflies in puzzles and books, but we don't get to see the Caterpillars so much. Features the Brimstone, Large White, Swallowtail, Small tortoiseshell, Red Admiral, Peacock, Common Blue, Painted Lady, Camberwell Beauty, and Comma Butterflies. 

We bought this when we were living in the UK, look below for an Australian Butterfly puzzle.

Monarch Butterfly Puzzle at How we Montessori (1)

This Montessori Monarch Butterfly Nomenclature Puzzle has been used by our family for years. It shows the Monarch Butterfly but also a Caterpillar. The puzzle base has lots of information about the Butterfly on it. These pieces are also really nice to put together on a piece of paper and trace around to draw the Butterfly!

Australian Butterfy Butterlies puzzle at How we Montessori (1)

I was super excited to find an Australian Butterflies Wooden Puzzle. This one doesn't have knobs but it is lovely. As you can see the puzzle has the Butterfly name next to each Butterfly which is super helpful! Most of all I love knowing we are learning about Australian Butterflies.
