Now that spring has arrived – at least in the Northern hemisphere – I thought it would be a good time to share another butterfly printable.
Today’s butterfly printable is my Butterfly Sudoku Puzzles that you can download for your kids to enjoy.
These Sudoku puzzles provide a fun, butterfly-themed brain exercise for kids in preschool through early elementary school.
Note: You’ll find more butterfly and insect resources on my Insect Unit Study page.
Sudoku is a great way to exercise your child’s brain with fun, engaging, puzzles that stimulate critical thinking and cognitive skills.
The goal of Sudoku – at least when played the usual way by adults – is to fill in a 9×9 grid such that each row, column, and 3×3 sub-grid includes one and only one of each digit from 1 to 9.
Depending on the number of blank spots in the Sudoku puzzle, the difficulty can range from quite easy to extremely challenging. (I’m personally a fan of the really challenging puzzles!)
In the Butterfly Sudoku Puzzles I am sharing today, I have made the game kid-friendly by adapting it to use images of beautiful butterflies instead of numbers.
Here is a sneak peak at the four Butterfly Sudoku games included in the download:
As you can see, I have included one advanced playing board with a 9×9 grid and three basic playing boards that have been shrunk to a 4×4 grid in order to make the game age appropriate for young children.
