>All you need is a picture from a magazine, an old greeting card, an old postcard or photo that can be cut up and a pair of scissors.
If you are using a picture from a magazine, make your puzzle stronger by gluing the picture to the same sized piece of cardboard (an old cereal box works well) before cutting it out. Cut your picture into different shapes and sizes, then try to put it back together!
Make this a family activity: Everyone makes a puzzle, then trades with other members.
This activity promotes creativity and puzzle solving skills.
