crafting with grandma - It Is Puzzle Day - Let's Make Puzzle Crafts!

Quick Tip: Make a Cute ‘Perfect Match’ Puzzle Necklace+(via+<a+href="http://craft.tutsplus.com/tutorials/quick-tip-make-a-cute-perfect-match-puzzle-necklace/">craft.tutsplus.com)While I was never a huge "fan" of assembling puzzles, I LOVE crafts with puzzle pieces! Not only are puzzle crafts interesting and unique, but they tend to be inexpensive as most of us have puzzles in our closets which are missing at least a piece or two . . . or they can be purchased at garage sales for typically less than a dollar!

You can do so many wonderful things with puzzle pieces . . . just look at some of the fun ideas I found on Pinterest . . .

    Puzzle craft
  • What isn't there to love about this little heart sign? Not only is this easy to make, but it is also a craft even a young child could prepare and then give to their parents for Valentine's Day!
  • This puzzle necklace looks like it would be great fun for a granddaughter to make for her mom for Valentine's Day! Simple, fun and allows your granddaughter to show her own unique sense of design! This is a necklace her mom is sure to treasure!
  • I LOVE this idea for making fun pins from puzzle pieces! Follow this link for the directions on how to make these pins . . . they could be a fun craft for your grandchildren to make . . . and they could make extras to give out to brighten the day of shut-ins, the secretaries at church and/or school, give to family, friends, teachers or to someone who just needs to be reminded they matter!
So, if you are like me and do not particularly enjoy putting puzzles together . . . or even if you do . . . these are just three fun ways to enjoy Puzzle Day with your grandchildren! Which idea do you like the best? Enjoy!
