Children love doing puzzles and you can involve your children in making them too with these easy popsicle stick puzzles! Use your own family pictures, pictures from magazines or create your own! The possibilities are endless.



personal sketch
Our bird puzzle was created using a picture from a magazine, regular size popsicle sticks and slightly watered down craft glue.


Time: 10 minutes (plus additional drying time for the paste)
Age: Any Age
Level: Easy

Materials
Popsicle sticks
Masking tape
Picture
Mod Podge or craft glue
Sharp craft knife

Method
Tape popsicle sticks together until you have an area large enough for the picture.



final

Spread a layer of Mod Podge or glue on the non taped side of the sticks and a layer on the back of your picture. Lay the picture on the sticks and push across the image to remove any bubbles and smooth out the image.



final
We used Mod Podge so we added another layer on top to seal. This layer will be milky when applied but dries clear.

Allow the glue to dry.
Remove the masking tape and if desired, draw a creation on the back of the sticks.

Use the craft knife to carefully cut between the sticks to form your pieces (younger children will need an adult to do this). I found it helped in this step to fold the sticks first just to loosen the glue.
Complete your puzzle!



Personal sketch

As we were giving our puzzles to Dad for a Father's Day card, we bound the sticks up in a ribbon. The kids will give them to dad on Father's Day and they can all have fun putting the puzzles together to read the message and see the pictures!



final


We have used both large and regular size popsicle sticks. The large sticks are much easier for little fingers to handle and put together. My five year old is comfortable with the regular sticks.
