Turn a large activity page in to a puzzle
I have found the ultimate way to make a puzzle. I recently went to the store and found a jumbo coloring book. Sit with your kids and color the page or pages. Laminate the page, (you can find laminate rolls at your local office supply store) then cut the pieces to any shape you want just make sure they will together like a puzzle. Now you have a home made large puzzle that you can use for fun and for educating little ones.
These are pictures of a Mural, or two of four murals I worked on with a few of the kids I babysat last weekend. It was so easy to keep them engaged and entertained for a few hours. They can add their own touch on the puzzle simply by coloring it any way they want. Don't forget if it's a coloring page such as these one you can also teach them their Farm Animals or their Colors.
