Materials

  • Several Popsicle sticks
  • Tape
  • Markers or acrylic paints

Directions

  1. Lay several Popsicle sticks side by side on a flat surface to form a square.
  2. Lay two pieces of tape across all the sticks to join them.
  3. Turn them over so the tape is on the underside.
  4. Draw or paint a picture on the Popsicle stick square.
  5. When the picture is complete, remove the tape.
  6. Have your child mix up the pieces and put them in the right order again.
  7. If you like, have two or more kids make puzzles then trade and try to put each other's puzzles together.
