This at home activity will allow your kids to have a great time! It involves some creativity and a bit a craftiness, but the final product will be a puzzle that your child can call their own!


The art: Figure out how your child likes to draw. He or she may like to color using crayons and paper, or like to use technology and get creative using drawing apps.

  • Paper
  • Colored pencils/crayons/paint
  • Computer or tablet/iPad if technology preferred
  • Scissors

The puzzle:

  • A set of wooden cubes (bought from store)
  • Glue
  • Clear tape
  • Straight edge/ruler

Note: Adult supervision recommended at all times.

Step 1: Setting Up

However your child likes to create art, have them create 4 drawings, each square in nature (the outside lengths of the drawings should all be the same).

Detailed steps:

  1. Line up the blocks to create a perfect square. There should the be same number of cubes on each side.
  2. Using the ruler, measure the total length of cubes while they are lined up.
  3. Draw six squares, each on a separate sheet of paper that are the same length as the sides of the lined up cubes.
  4. Cut out the six squares (WARNING: Sharp edge used, adult supervision recommended).
  5. Give the squares to your child, and let them get creative!!
