If you’re looking for a non-candy Valentine’s gift, here’s one for you:  make a personalized photo puzzle!  My little ones really enjoy seeing themselves on a puzzle, and they have fun piecing the photo back together.  This is a quick, inexpensive craft that is fun to give and to receive!

Step two:  Cut the photo into pieces following the lines you traced.

Step three:  Use Mod Podge to attach the picture to the corresponding puzzle piece.  I brushed a light layer onto the puzzle piece and then firmly pressed the photo on.  I didn’t put Mod Podge on top of the pictures.

Place the pieces pieces back into the tray they came in, and you’re done!  As a fun alternative, you could put magnets on the back of each piece and stick them to your fridge.  Another idea is to use a greeting card image, put the pieces in an envelope, and make a fun puzzle birthday card or invitation.  Have fun crafting and creating!
