Popsicle Stick Puzzles

My friend, Linda, shared these puzzles with me.  She actually had the children draw pictures on their popsicle sticks, but I decided to adapt it for our sunflower theme.

You need:
Jumbo popsicle sticks
Sunflower photo or clipart
Craft knife

1.  Print and cut out a sunflower photo.  Lay out the craft sticks to see how many will be needed.

2.  Tape the edges of the craft sticks to the work surface so they will not move.

3.  Glue the photograph to the craft sticks.

4.  Using a craft knife, cut through the photo to cut the sticks apart.

An easy storage idea is a plastic baggy.  These puzzles would be great to put in a diaper bag or purse to pull-out when you're on-the-go and need a quiet activity!

What type of glue did you find works best?

We used school glue that we smeared around. I tried a glue stick, but it didn't seem to hold quite as well!

I think I am going to try Modge Pogde that can be used for decopauge (sp?).

could you use a real photo or does it need to be printed from a computer?
