I love creating DIY puzzles for my kids. I usually use cardboard but for sure popsicle sticks, wooden blocks and even fabrics can be used to make DIY puzzles. My favorite one is cardboard, because it is always very easy to give shapes and color cardboards.
Here is a great DIY puzzle idea for you. Cut the paper rolls in half horizontally and put them on top of each other to form a whole, then create your image. Even your little one can create his/her own design. You can draw animals, patterns, movie characters.
Make a lovely sudoku to make your summer vacation more fun. Take with you wherever you go. Now it is time for you the decide what theme you want. Here is a bug themed sudoku for you.
Have you ever received any DIY card from someone?
I think this is the only thing makes us feel so special because someone is making something only for us which is unique.
After drawing and cutting our newspaper animals, we filled them with newspaper, stapled the edges and then colored them with watercolor. They turned into super cute sea creatures.
So great to create your own games from recyclable materials, isn’t it? This time we added seashell handles just to give the puzzle a cooler appearance.
MB loves spending time in the kitchen. He prepares pasta, muffins and smoothie himself. When I ask his dream job, he directly says “Cook”. And he wants to be a cook, because he wants to cook for all homeless kids. This answer is melting my heart. This activity is great for boosting self-confidence, too. We named the place “MB’s Food Corner”, we were customers and MB was the chef. We ordered and he cooked, served for us. When you look into the setup, I am sure that you will see many skills in it, even more than I wrote below.
Some activities are suitable for both little and big kids. If you prepare this activity as line tracing, so it will be suitable for 2 year olds. If you add patterns to it, so your 6 years old probably will love this idea a lot. Briefly, it was a great sibling play for my kids.
Paper rolls are great for creating very cute small houses. You can dream and design your own lovely cottages. Especially on dark winter days this small world will make you have fun.
If our cake sprinkles are out of date, we can make a beautiful 2 tier cardboard cake. 🍰🍰🍰Do you want some? You can find its tutorial photo on this post. And you can use it as a model cake at birthday parties.
