How To Make a Jigsaw Puzzle
You Will Need
  • A grown-up to help with cutting
  • A photo, a poster, a picture from a magazine, or a drawing
  • A thick piece of cardboard or foam board
  • Some glue
  • Scissors
  • A pencil
step 1 Choose picture
Choose a picture that you want to make into a puzzle, and then choose a piece of cardboard or foam board thatís slightly bigger than your picture.
  tip The lid of a pizza box can make a perfect puzzle board—as long as it’s not all cheesy and oily!
step 2Glue image
Glue your image to the board youíve chosen and let it dry overnight.
  tip Place a flat, heavy object on top—like a book—so the picture dries nice and evenly.
step 3Trim board
Ask a grown-up to help you trim off any of the extra cardboard or foam board thatís around your picture with the scissors.
step 4 Draw jigsaw shapes
Turn your picture over and draw jigsaw shapes on the back of the board.
  tip Shapes with at least two semicircular parts, facing either in or out, work best—small, complicated shapes will be hard to put back together.
step 5Cut picture
Again with a grown-up helping you, cut the picture along the lines youíve just drawn.
step 6 Do puzzle
Now jumble up the pieces and see how long it takes you to do your handmade puzzleóor challenge your friends to try it.
