I made Puzzle Planks with my niece. Here's how:
1. Get wide tongue depressors (the kind that a doctor uses) from a craft store.
2. Lay them out flat and line them up next to one another, maybe 7 to 8 of them.
3. Tape them together down both ends with a long strip of tape.
4. Then turn them over.
5. Have your child drawn and color in a picture.
6. Remove the tape and mix up the planks.
9. Have your child put the puzzles planks back together.
The child has made their own puzzle.
