Popsicle Stick Puzzles

I had some extra craft sticks, a.k.a. Popsicle sticks, left over from another craft so I thought I’d put them to some good use. So I grabbed a bottle of Mod Podge (but school glue would work too) and a photo.

Here is what you will need:
craft sticks
a photo (or a colored picture)
mod podge (school glue)
scissors

Carefully attach the photo of your choosing to the craft sticks (line them up all nice and neat). Glob on a good layer of glue or mod podge and let it dry over night.

After they are completely dry you can use a scissors or a blade to cut them apart.

Then let your child see if they can put the puzzle back together again. My 5 year old son loved this…the only correction he gave me (ha ha ha) was that he wanted a photo of himself rather than his brother and sister.
