I’m so glad that my little man loves puzzles. When we quietly work on one together, there is peace in our world. Puzzle-time is the next best thing to nap-time. Consequently, we have dozens of puzzles all over the house, waiting for a calm and collected child to enjoy them. We also have quite a few printed photos and postcards tucked in various envelopes, waiting to be neatly organized or framed. Typically, the calm child and the organized mom do not co-exist. But when they do, we try a new craft.
Making a popsicle stick puzzle took some time and patience. I will also admit, I went back over my son’s work and re-glued everything. Learn from our mistakes and you will be fine.
DIY 16-Piece Puzzle:
* Collect your materials: 16 popsicle sticks, one photo, foam brush, utility knife, cutting surface, white glue, water, and a jar for homemade “Mod Podge”.
* Combine 1 part water and 1 part glue in a jar. Shake. Now you have mod podge.
