Le Légume Language

Le Legume Language is a bilingual learning puzzle targeted at children ages 2 through 6. The puzzle focuses on teaching youth about French, and food (legumes to be exact). Each fruit and vegetable included in puzzle has the French title on one side and English on the other. 

The 11 x 12 inch puzzle is made entirely of bass wood. In order to apply the images and text to the puzzle pieces I used Lazertran transfer paper. The process involves printing images using a laser printer, soaking the images in water, applying turpentine to the wood, and placing the now transparent laser print on the wood’s surface. This processes was time consuming, but effective.
