My son is two. I am forever looking for something to keep his attention and help him develop his mind. As it turns out, he loves puzzles! When I ran across this toddler puzzle tutorial I knew I had to try it. Below is how I customized this puzzle for my son.
Toddler Puzzle Activity
I printed off three photos of Big Daddy Crab and I and cut them to fit on the large Popsicle sticks. I got out my Elmer’s Glue all and a sponge brush to brush the glue on the photos and attach them to the sticks. (Next time I will cut my photos a little bit wider) The last step that I added was to number the sticks. This way we can learn numbers later and I can remember which order the pictures go in.
This toddler puzzle activity is an easy craft and can be made during nap time or at bed time, then it can be brought out to keep your toddler busy while you cook dinner or anytime you need a few moments. It is better than sitting them in from of the Television, although I have come up with a list of good quality tv show for Preschoolers. If I have to turn on a show, I turn one of these on. Little Crab likes them too!
