A Homemade Puzzle

I saw these on Funny Days With Mommy and Maddie, and knew I had to try them. These puzzles were so easy to do, and I am hoping the kids will like them. To make these, all you need are markers and six tongue depressor size Popsicle sticks. Tape the tongue depressors along the back to make them stable. Turn them over and draw a design. I chose to cover the entire surface of the sticks because I thought it would be easier for them to put together that way. Peel the masking tape off, and you are done. I used a hair tie to keep the pieces together. Little Bean and Miss O wanted to try these right away, so I let them each have at it. Little Bean completed his quickly, but Miss O got frustrated right away and didn't want to finish. I'm not sure if she was just cranky or truly didn't know how to do it. Or maybe she just doesn't like the transportation theme! Either way, I think I may have made this project too easy for Little Bean and to hard for Miss O. Hopefully they will like it more as time goes on. In any case, I like them! ;)
