Turn Greeting Cards into Puzzles

Turn Greeting Cards into Puzzles
You can make a challenging activity for your child by turning greeting cards into puzzles!
 
Turn cards into puzzles for kids

Do you still have Christmas cards around? If so, take one and give this activity a try (If not, Valentines Day will be here soon and you could use one of those).

This card was perfect to make a simple puzzle out of. I cut it into 4 pieces and modeled for Blake how to put it together. We took turns and completed it a few times.

You can even cut it into more pieces for an extra challenge. The pieces don’t need to be even. You can add diagonal lines too. 

Put magnets onto the back of the pieces and use the fridge as a vertical surface for putting the puzzle together (or a magnetic cookie sheet).

Oh wow, my Mum used to do this for us when we were younger and I had completely forgotten about it. What a great memory to have back.

Thank you for your comment on my blog.

We loved this when we did it as well! It is great to reuse things that would just end up in the trash!
