DIY Puzzle Piece Art

Looking for a fun project to do with the kiddos this summer? On a rainy day ... how about use those mismatched puzzle pieces to create ART?
For this project, you'll need spray paint, a blank canvas, puzzle pieces, and some cardboard large enough to cut your letters out of.
PREP: Spray paint your puzzle pieces. We used silver, gold, and blue. Do this a day ahead of time to have them ready for your kiddos!
Cut your letters out of cardboard.
Then let your kiddos start glueing the puzzle pieces to the letters:
Let them fill in the entire letter (or help them complete this task):
Then glue entire letter to a canvas. We painted stripes onto a white canvas using painters tape prior to attaching the letter:
That's it! Unique, thrifty, and kid-friendly art that your little ones can be proud of (and that you'll actually be excited to display in your home)!

    I taught a class once where we did something similar, but we used a heavy cardboard wreath and covered it with puzzle pieces,3 layers thick, then painted it green.

    Use tagboard cut out like photo frames. Cover like above, and pop a photo in the middle. Great on the fridge - just change out the photos when you wish if you tape them in.
