Busy Bag Idea:  Christmas Card Puzzles

1)  Cut the front of a card off.

2)  Use a pen to draw puzzle pieces on the back of the card.  Add a number to each piece (this will help your child sort them if you keep them all in one large plastic baggie).

Store the pieces in a plastic baggie or storage bin.  If you number each puzzle with a different number, you can use it as a sorting activity, too.
