What You'll Need:

  • Paper

Step 1: Craving a puzzle with personal appeal? Write your favorite poem, classic or original, on a blank sheet of paper. Illustrate the poem with bright colors and drawings.

Step 2: Glue the paper to a piece of cardboard, and let it dry completely. Once it's dry, cut the stiff page into small pieces. You'll have your own personal puzzle poem to put back together and enjoy.
