I have a little boy who adores puzzles. His sister likes puzzles, but he LOVES them. He would do puzzles all day if I let him. Unfortunately my budget cannot keep up with his appetite for puzzles--and we have a LOT of puzzles! Sooo, I decided to make him some puzzles and he loves them!!
I took a bunch of food boxes, cut the fronts off and then cut those into pieces...voila! Instant puzzles!
These puzzles don't have a lot of pieces (although the Costco size box of Cheerios does have a bunch!) but they provide a challenge to him because the pieces don't "lock" together as nicely as store-bought puzzles.
At any rate, my children enjoy them and find it highly amusing to do the "waffle" puzzle and the "cracker" puzzle.
