Pumpkin Puzzle

Pre-K, K,
This was such a neat idea from DLTK.

Your child can create their own puzzle and put it together over and over again!

For this craft you will need:
  • A computer & printer
  • Printer paper
  • Crayons or markers
  • Heavy cardboard (8.5 x 11)
  • Contact Paper (optional)
  • Glue
First, print out this pumpkin puzzle template from DLTK.

Let your child color his or her puzzle. When they are done glue (thoroughly!) to your heavy cardboard.

I covered mine with contact paper to be sure the puzzle would last and last.

The directions on DLTK say to use a exacto knife, but I managed just fine with scissors when cutting the puzzle pieces out.

Keep your pieces in an envelope or snack sized baggie and they can be put together again and again.

Mommy tip: I save the backs of writing tablets, and other things that have stiff cardboard on them. I knew they would come in handy one of these days. You could also use the cardboard found in a new shirt, or cut open a gift box.
