Whether you’re hosting a zoo themed celebration for your little party animals at home or teaching your students about jungle wildlife in the classroom, these free printable animal mix and match puzzles are the perfect quiet busy book activity for animal lovers.
The purpose of these self-correcting animal puzzles is to teach children how to “complete” the animal pictures, but I like to let the kiddos use their wonderful imaginations to make unique animal combinations and invent names for these imaginary animals.
To get started, simply download the free animal puzzles below (available in a PDF format), print out the pages, cut the pictures along the dotted lines, and then jumble up all the puzzle pieces so that your kids can enjoy sorting out all the pieces to complete the puzzles. If you want to make these puzzles more durable, you can laminate the cut outs or print the images on a hard card stock paper. If your children are looking for something even more interactive to practice their fine motor and problem solving skills, be sure to check our our newest printable 3D animal puzzle cubes.
