Create fun puzzle pieces with this indoor craft for kids. You'll have fun putting your own jazzy jigsaw puzzle back together -- or you can mail it to family or friends as a surprise.
What You'll Need:
- Thin poster board
- Photo, magazine picture, or drawing
- Glue stick
Step 1: Cut the poster board to your desired finished size. You may want to start small at first, to practice your puzzle-making skills.
Step 2: Next, cut a photo or picture to the size of the poster board. Glue the photo or picture to the board with the glue stick.
Step 3: On the backside of the poster board, about 1 inch from the left edge, draw a zigzag line from top to bottom with a pencil. Draw a similar line 1 inch away from that, and continue across the board.
Step 4: Now draw zigzag lines from side to side -- perpendicular to the first set of lines -- about 1 inch away from each other. Cut along each line.
Step 5: Turn each puzzle piece face up and put together your own designer jigsaw creation!
