Younger kids — Have fun identifying and naming the animals in each layer.
Older kids — Explore the tide pool in more detail by picking a layer and an animal from that layer. How is that animal adapted to survive in that layer? For example: Limpet has an extremely strong grip to hold onto rocks or other surfaces. Why? Because it lives in the spray zone and has to withstand the harsh waves and currents from the ocean. Isn’t that fascinating?

All of our toys are made using the highest quality wood, non-toxic paints, and sealants that are food safe. The CPSC approval is made by third party labs and we maintain an up to date compliance certificate at all times.

This material includes a puzzle base with space for 5 tide pool layers. 

Shipping note
Etsy sometimes overestimates or doesn't take flat rate options into account, wood is heavy and flat rate options is often cheaper. I always refund shipping overage.
