Here's a great idea arts and crafts idea that we received from Wendy Jackson, one of our readers. I always save puzzle pieces that no longer made up a whole puzzle and I was glad to get a great idea on how to use them. I tried this idea with my kids and it was a big hit.

Thanks Wendy!

Appropriate for Ages: Three and Up

Time Needed: Ten Minutes

What You'll Need:

  • Puzzle Pieces (To quote Wendy "works great with that brand new puzzle that the dog chewed up one piece to.")
  • Glue
  • Corkboard or a picture that your child drew.

What to Do:

  1. Take glue and put it around the border of a corkboard or a picture drawn by your child. You can do this either with a small glue container or put a little bit of glue into a cup and have your child "paint" the glue around the edges.

  2. Glue puzzle pieces around the border of the corkboard or picture.

  3. Let it dry and hang it up.
