All you need is cardboard and playdough. This is great activity to foster fine motor skills. You jus make different size of holes on a piece of cardboard and fill them with playdough. You can also use different materials instead of playdough such as dyed rice, salt, oat etc.
Another fun puzzle idea with winter theme. ❄️ Just match the mittens and have fun while fostering motor skills.
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.
This is one of the first cardboard craft of us. It might be even the first. As you see, it is quite simple to make. :)This is one of the first cardboard craft of us. It might be even the first. As you see, it is quite simple to make. 🙂
Until now we made many different puzzles but this one was inspired by MB’s shirt. MB has a very beautiful mustache collection printed shirt. Puzzles are great for many learning skills and this time our theme is famous mustaches of these famous persons.
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.
