Family Photo Puzzle Craft
While this project is just fun in general, it also makes a great gift for grandparents or other relatives. Adding a magnet sheet to the back of the puzzle before cutting the pieces is also a nice alternative turning this into a refrigerator activity! You can use a regular photograph or one that you print directly onto copy paper.

For this photo puzzle you will need:
Cardboard from a recycled cereal box
Family photo (Photograph or paper print out)
Find a photograph you would like to use and a piece of cardboard big enough to hold the picture. I suggest using a photo that is 5×7 or larger.
Cover the cardboard with your glue stick.
Center the photo on the cardboard and press from the center outward, making sure there are no air bubbles. When dry, straighten the cardboard with your hands (glue makes it a curl a bit) and cut it into several pieces.
