Get Crafty With Puzzle Pieces

During some spring cleaning, we decided to organize the puzzles and soon found ourselves moving the couch, lifting the carpet, and digging in piles of books searching out missing pieces. While the search was mostly successful, our Tiger puzzle from a recent trip to the zoo was a casualty of a few bent and peeled pieces and several MIAs. Rather than tossing it, we assembled this crafty Puzzle Piece Picture Frame from http://www.timetorecycle.org/ (good for ages 6 and up.)

You’ll need:

  • 4 craft sticks
  • puzzle pieces
  • photo
  • tab from a soda can (or several magnets)
  • craft glue
  • scissors
  • paint (optional)

Glue the craft sticks together at the edges to make a frame. Glue the puzzle pieces around the craft stick frame – paint the puzzle pieces first, if you’d like. Trim the photo to the same size as the frame and then glue it to the back side of the frame. Finally, glue the soda tab to the back to use as a hanger, or glue on the magnets for a great fridge decoration.
