You Will Need
- A grown-up to help with cutting
- A photo, a poster, a picture from a magazine, or a drawing
- A thick piece of cardboard or foam board
- Some glue
- A pencil
Choose a picture that you want to make into a puzzle, and then choose a piece of cardboard or foam board that's slightly bigger than your picture.
Glue your image to the board you've chosen and let it dry overnight.
Ask a grown-up to help you trim off any of the extra cardboard or foam board that's around your picture with the scissors.
Draw jigsaw shapes
Turn your picture over and draw jigsaw shapes on the back of the board.
Again with a grown-up helping you, cut the picture along the lines you've just drawn.
Now jumble up the pieces and see how long it takes you to do your handmade puzzle—or challenge your friends to try it.
