My kids have always enjoyed puzzles, from the chunky wooden inset puzzles as babies, to the giant floor puzzles, then more complicated ones and even 3D puzzles. We’re taking part in the Ravensburger Twitter party tomorrow, and as one our party activities we got the kids to colour and make their own puzzles.
Making your own puzzles is a really simple idea but all of the kids loved it. With just a few supplies, you can make your own kids puzzle and then spent time making and re-making them once they’re done.
To make your own colour-in puzzle craft you will need:
- Colouring page (either printed directly onto the card, or glue it on)
- Colouring pens or pencils
- Small Zip lock bags to store the pieces for each puzzle
We used Inside Out colouring pages, which worked really well since the kids had been enjoying playing with this Inside Out puzzle just before.
The steps are really simple.
First, colour the picture
And here’s the finished puzzle
Join us tomorrow 18th August on Twitter from 2-4pm for our #RavensburgerPuzzles #Puzzling twitter party. There will be lots more fun puzzles chat, games and ideas, and prizes to win. I hope to see lots of you there!
