How to Make a Puzzle

Jan 04, 2013

Puzzles are great rainy day activities and they range from simlpe ones with just a few pieces to more difficult ones with thousands of pieces. Every puzzle has an image, some make putting the puzzle together more challenging because there's repeating colors and patterns. Most times you have to choose an image from a selection at the store, but you can also make your own image!

Even if it’s not a rainy day, puzzles are fun for family get together’s or time with friends. And when you make your own you can use an image of whatever you choose. Draw a picture, use a photo of your friends or use your favorite poster and make it into a puzzle!

Materials

  • Piece of cardboard or foam
  • Picture, poster or drawing
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Pencil

Instructions

  1. Measure the piece of cardboard or foam so that it is slightly bigger than your picture.
  2. Glue the picture to the cardboard.
  3. Let the glue dry completely with a flat weight on it, something like a book. To make sure it is completely dry, let it dry over night.
  4. Cut the excess cardboard or foam from the edges of your photo.
  5. On the back of the cardboard or foam, take your pencil and draw out puzzle pieces. The larger the pieces the easier the puzzle, and the smaller the harder.
  6. Cut out each piece along the line you just drew.
  7. The scissors may have curled the edges of the cardboard, if so just lay them flat under the weight for a few hours.
  8. Happy puzzle solving!
