This is Vincent. Vincent loves puzzles. However they are so expensive! Another problem is losing the peices to your 10 dollar puzzle. Bummer right!? So i came up with a cheap way to make a cute customized puzzle from a dollar foam board.

I started by thinking what he would like and his skill level. I decided colors and 4 pieces. I searched google for color images. I found a free cute dinasour coloring page and colored it on the computer. heres my finished product if you want to do the dino puzzle.

Dino colors printable

you need:

  • foam board

  • ruler

  • scissors

  • spray adhesive

  • 2 copies of pictures for the puzzle

  • an exacto knife

  • some card board to cut on (i used a diaper box)

(skip the mod podge didnt work out)

I then measured out 2 12 x 8 inch rectangles from the foam board.

Next i cut out the dinosaurs and adhered one set to a piece of foamboard.

Then use the exacto knife to cut out around the dinos. I started with a dino shape and then i decide for his skill level ovals would be better.

Next Adhere the outer cutout to the other piece of foam board.
