What’s better than one chocolate bar? One you get to eat twice!

Okay, perhaps not really, but this neat puzzle will have your child thinking hard about shapes and how they fit together. We printed out a chocolate bar template, and cut into 5 pieces along the dotted lines.

As a fun reward, we cut up a real chocolate bar in the same way for a little after-school treat!
