Make Your Own Puzzle

Preschool Arts & crafts Activities: Make Your Own Puzzle

What You Need:

  • Thin cardboard or posterboard
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Craft knife
  • Crayons or markers
  • Magazines
  • Paper

What You Do:

  1. Help your child to decide if they want to cut out a picture from a magazine or draw their own picture.
  2. Hand them the markers or crayons if they're drawing their own design, then skip to Step 4. Or, if they'd rather choose a picture from a magazine, let them cut it out, then help them glue the picture to the cardboard. Set it aside to dry.
  3. When the glue is completely dry, use the scissors to trim the cardboard to fit the picture exactly. Be sure to toss any extra cardboard into the recycle bin.
  4. This next step needs to be completed by an adult: Use the craft knife to cut the picture on the cardboard into squiggly shapes. The smaller the pieces, the more challenging the puzzle will be.
  5. When you finish cutting the picture into pieces, mix it up and give it to your child to solve. Good luck putting it back together again!
