Make Your Own Puzzles!
There are several ways to get pictures:
- coloring books
- coloring sheets off the internet
- pages out of old books
- a hand-drawn picture made by the child
Once the picture is ready, just glue it to a nice study backing like a piece of cardboard or posterboard. Once it dries, cut the puzzle into simple blocks. Store puzzles in plastic bags or a plastic container.
Note: I've taken pictures of the finished puzzle before it was cut apart to include in with the pieces, to give the kids an idea of which puzzle it was, and how it's supposed to look when done.
