How we did it:

Materials List

  1. puzzle pieces
  2. paint & paint brush
  3. googly eyes
  4. feathers, yarn, craft foam, pom poms, stickers, etc.
  1. We always end up with a puzzle that is missing one or two pieces. This is a fun way to put those extra puzzle pieces to use. Bigger pieces are easier for younger children to decorate. Older children can handle adding detail to a small piece. Paint your puzzle pieces and let them dry. The darker colors covered our pieces better than the orange and yellow. If you want to use a lighter color, you may need 2-3 coats of paint.

  2. Once the pieces are dry, add details with googly eyes, feathers, yarn, pom poms, craft foam, markers, etc.

  3. Get creative and add hair, clothes, facial features, or even a speech bubble. Put a magnet on the back and use them to display your art or school work.
