Tucker The Turtle

We've gone Tuck wild in our house lately.  Tucker the Turtle is the star of Tucker Turtle Takes Time to Tuck and Think a WONDERFUL book to help kids learn the turtle technique.  It's a completely free download available here:
Tucker Turtle Book

***Spoiler Alert***
Tucker teaches kids to "think like a turtle" by stopping, tucking in, taking three deep breaths, and thinking of a solution

It's worked a miracle in our house!  Everyone is much calmer, and happier.  We have a Tucker puppet, pocket sized crochet turtles, a turtle Pillow Pet, and more.  We have big plans for Tucker so stay tuned.

Today we have a Tucker Puzzle.  What's cool about this puzzle is that it's EASY to make.

Start by getting the file here:

Then laminate the sheet for extra durability.
Then cut the pieces out, glue them to large craft sticks, and attach magnets if you'd like.
With the other side cut it into pieces, and tape it back together on the back with tape so it can fold neatly for storing in a pencil case.

That's all there is to it!
