Create a Jigsaw Puzzle

It’s raining outside and you are bored? Make your own jigsaw puzzle! It does not take a long time and it’s fun! You can find  sturdy cardboard blank jigsaw puzzles in craft stores or on the web (many small puzzles or a large one). I bought mine in a local craft store.

You can skip this if you prefer to create a more challenging puzzle. Then start drawing and don’t stop until it’s filled. When you think you are done, take the time to ensure that each puzzle piece has at least a piece of drawing on it. It might be boring to get pieces that are just blank, but on the other hand you could also do it on purpose just to augment the difficulty.

Voilà! Making your own puzzle is easy and fun. It’s a great activity to go with kids. My children and nephews really enjoyed it.
