Recycle Old Puzzle Pieces With The Kids

kudzukweenDecember 12, 2009

I made these with my grandson. For the candy cane, I used a length of tape upside down, and stuck the puzzle pieces on that to make painting easier. A strip of red ones, and a strip of white ones. These are really cute, and you don't have to use a hanger unless you want to. For the reindeer, I painted edge pieces for the head, and 2 regular pieces for the antlers. Two wiggly eyes and a mini pom pom nose. Glue a hanger to the back.

Merry Christmas
