Jigsaw puzzles are great for children to develop skills such as spatial awareness, fine motor skills, concentration, memory, shape recognition and problem solving to name but a few.
Today I am going to show you how to make your own jigsaws.
I don’t have any jigsaws at home so I have made my own!
I found some old Christmas and birthday cards.
Next I drew some lines on the back with a ruler (you could ask a grown up to do this for you) and carefully cut them out.
Then I was ready to make the jigsaws by putting the pieces together to make a picture.
Can you see what the pictures are?
Why don’t you have a go at this at home with some old cards or pictures from a magazine?
Ask a grown up to help you to draw the lines but you can try to cut them carefully along the lines if you think you can. Be careful with the scissors!
