We love puzzles, but it seems like my kids lose a lot of the pieces in a short amount of time. When I learned about making our own puzzles a while ago, we were hooked. If a piece gets lost it is not an issue as we can make a whole new puzzle for pennies!
This is such an easy project you are going to wonder why you have never made these with your kids before! It requires basic supplies and only a few moments of time to create. There is no prep time to speak of, and best of all your kids can make these on their own!
All you need to make puzzles are:
Classic Washable Markers
First, tape the craft sticks together.
Then draw a design on the opposite side.
Color in the background.
Peel the tape off of the back and scatter the sticks. And there you have an Easy Puzzle for toddlers and preschoolers. If you have older children, you might want to check out my idea for an easy DIY photo puzzle.
These make a great gift idea for anyone wanting to give a sweet gift for a little one on a tight budget.
