Activity: Make Your Own Puzzle
I gave each child a blank piece of card stock and a piece of paper with a jigsaw puzzle pattern printed on it. The kids could draw whatever they wanted on the card stock. Then they glued the the picture on the back of the puzzle pattern and cut along the lines of the pattern to make their picture into a puzzle.
