Craft Stick Puzzle

I saw this easy puzzle activity a while back in the Disney Family Fun Magazine - the perfect activity for a Saturday morning at home.

All you need are craft sticks, wide tape, and some markers.

Line up 8 or 10 sticks and tape them together.

After that draw the picture for the puzzle. A picture of one large item works better than a whole scene.

Once the picture is complete peel the tape off and puzzle away.

After assembling the puzzle the normal way a few times the kids mixed their sticks together and assembled them randomly creating some nice colorful patterns. The mixed up images where so much more interesting than the original drawings, I'm glad they don't always play with things in the way I think they will.

How do your kids surprise you?
