I shared with you last week how we made a sunflower puzzle using craft sticks, but I wanted to add a few more ideas today. I made these with the girls last week, but you’re stuck looking at mine (sorry, definitely not as cute)!
Craft Stick Puzzles
- Jumbo Craft Sticks
- Photo or other picture
- Craft knife
1. Print out a photo or find a picture. Tape down the craft sticks. Glue on the photo and allow to dry. Write each letter of your child’s name on a craft stick.
2. Using a craft knife, cut apart the puzzle. Store in a baggy or bind together with a rubber band.
Here is another idea:
1. Tape down enough craft sticks for your child’s name. Write the name on the bottom.
2. Tape both sides securely. Let your child draw a picture (of themselves or whatever they want to draw).
The name on the bottom makes it much easier to know which way the craft sticks go in the puzzle. It is also great practice for learning how to spell a name (or any other word)!
