Craft Stick Puzzles

I have seen these craft stick puzzles on the internet and have been wanting to make a few for Audrey.  I am so glad that I did!! They are super simple and inexpensive to make.  They are a great tool to help reinforce number order.  I decided to make the numbers start with 30 since Audrey had some trouble recognizing these numbers.  You can find the directions here.

I actually just made a copy of a picture from one of our books at home and cut it to fit the craft sticks.  Next, line up the craft sticks and paint mod podge over them.  You could put tape on the back so they won't move around.  Put your picture down and then paint mod podge over the picture.  After it dries, about an hour, put the numbers on the sicks and cut with an exacto knife or any other tool.

Thanks for the link. That's a good idea to add tape to the back :)

I love this idea. We have some of these puzzles at school, but it would be so fun to actually make them, and so easy! Thanks!
