Puzzles for Jaden

After spending a week with his grandma and grandpa Parsons while Jake and I were on our cruise, my 4 year old son Jaden found out how much he enjoys doing puzzles. He spends hours doing puzzles and his grandparents house and i wanted to get him some him at home. Unfortunately puzzles aren't exactly the cheapest things in the world, so i decided, heck i'll make them myself. After hours of experimenting, i finally came up with this. I found a cute picture on the internet, printed it out on card stock, pasted it onto some foam board and cut out the pieces. The base is just cardboard with an extra thick layer of foam board on the edge so it is easier for jaden to put the puzzle together. It hasn't turned out the way i wanted it to, but it will do for now until i can figure out something better.

  1. that really is a brilliant idea. It makes the pieces thick enough that little fingers can do it. I love it!
