Audrey does really well with her 100 piece puzzles and Sophia enjoys the big chunky ones. Both girls just love puzzles, and they especially enjoy it when we (Mommy and Daddy) play with them. Why not make your own puzzles? They only cost 10 cents!
Step #1: Draw a picture on a white sheet of paper. Keep in mind, I am not the best artist...I am sure many of you can do MUCH better, but Audrey liked mine:)
Step #2: Color the picture. This helps to create ownership of the puzzle.
Step #3: Turn the paper over and draw lines/shapes on the back. I used a ruler to help with this process. For younger children, you could start with 4-6 pieces and then build up to more pieces.
Step #4: Laminate and cut out all of the pieces.
Step #5: Assemble your puzzle! It only cost 10 cents:) Now that is in my budget and Audrey made her own puzzle! The learning possibilities are endless!
