So, when I came across Thinkernation and their Arabic puzzles, I knew I had found something special!

Arabic Spell and Learn
My children and I have been wanting to learn Arabic together for a while now, so when we received the Arabic Spell and Learn puzzle by Thinkernation, it was perfect timing! My children were amazed by the colorful pictures on each wooden plate, and when they realized that these plates came with Arabic letters, they got even more excited! All they wanted to do was to dive right in and start playing with the puzzle!

”WOW!” was the first word that popped out of the mouths of my children when they initially saw this puzzle, I think they were taken aback by the bright and cheery colorful Arabic letters! As a mother, there is no greater joy than to see a huge smile on your child’s face, and that is exactly what I saw when I looked over at my children!
