I am one of those moms that hates giving and getting the party favors that just get thrown in the garbage so I am always looking for something that will be useful. So for my sons party I did up these wooden block puzzles for each of the kids.
I started by cutting a 2x2 strip of pine into squares (well maybe rectangles, because my measure were a little bit off). For the boys I painted the squares brown and the girls I painted them pink.
The next part was probably the most time consuming of it all as I had to cut out the pictures to fit on the puzzle and cut out the puzzles pieces. Once that was done I glued them on and waited for them to dry. Once they were all dry I sanded the edges with a palm sander and finished it off with a top coat.
Although it was a time consuming project the end result was well worth it.
Each child got a family picture on one side and a individual picture on the other side
