As I have already explained, I have a granddaughter who is 14 months old next January 6. Now, she needs small toys that may create a link to Nature and all the animals children like so much, while having to think and elaborate to play with them.

As I was looking for something interesting to create a puzzle, I came upon a marvellous puzzle: an elephant family, with all the elements cut out, so that they can be together or separated.

As I have bought a Jig Saw recently, i decided to give it a try, but with thicker wood.

Step 1: Drawing It and Cutting It Into Pieces

First I had to draw the picture on thick watercolour paper and then I cut it into pieces so that I could print the image in a piece of pine wood.

As you can see in the pictures, the elements of the family are completely separated on the right and together on the left.

<p>you inspired me to create something similar to my daughter ... thanks for sharing</p>
Cool. I had something similar growing up. Lots of fun.
