I was inspired by Pink and Green Mama with her Homemade Christmas Gift. I used this Shapes Photo Puzzle to lure my sleep fighting 2 years old in to the bedroom for their naptime. It's hard to get them in the bathroom and it's harder to get them in the bedroom as they know it's going to be sleep after books. So, again, I had to crack my brain to think of ways to lure them in. This was really easy and I finished it when they were in school.
I did it a bit differently. It was not meant to be a gift and I want to be able to use the puzzle again. So, I laminated the photos. I did the first version just using paper though.
What You Need:
A Shape Puzzle
Photos of family members
Laminator (optional, just print on card stock if you don't have one)
- Find portraits of family members.
- Resize accordingly and print them.
- Use the shapes to trace the photos for the puzzle holes.
- Put them in the puzzle and cover with the inset.
- Play Memory Games
- Photo Hunt
- Put the photos back
What I like about not sticking the photos on the puzzles is that I can always change them and change the sequence for more memory games and keep the interest high.
