Giveaway: Puerto Rico Map Puzzle

No comments:
Puzzles and education were meant to go together.  I love using puzzles as educational activities with my kids. My four year old knows where most of the states go because of the 3 different United States puzzles we have.  She can also name a lot of the states just by their shape.  My 2.5 year old knows a few of them now too.  His favorite seems to be Tennessee for some reason.
