Make Your Own Puzzle!1:03 AM
I first saw this idea on Melanie's blog. I knew I had to try it! So a couple of days before I left for Uganda, the kids and I along with Arielle, my niece, baked cookies and made puzzles! A fun craft that isn't too difficult for little hands.
First, I cut out large rectangular pieces of cardboard from empty cereal and oatmeal boxes and let the kids choose a page from an old book. We never read this one (I think it was from a Cheerios box) but it has cool watercolor-looking photos.
Next, we glued the page to the shiny side of the cardboard. After it dries, trim the edge. Using a pencil, mark pieces to cut on the back. I cut pieces according to the size of the child. Joshua's had smaller pieces and Arielle's were several big pieces. Emma Grace was somewhere in between.
