Okay guys, these DIY Felt Puzzles are the easiest, most simple-to-make puzzles and you’ll love them (or I should say your little ones will)!
Create these DIY puzzles using felt squares and simply cutting them in half, or for more complex puzzles cut into 3 pieces or even 4! My son, who’s 3 years old, did the 2-piece puzzles in a blink of an eye, so I had to cut each puzzle set into 3 pieces so his noggin could work a little harder. Basically, look at your child, observe them and decide whether you need to cut the felt square into 2, 3 or 4. It’s that versatile! 🙂
My favorite part about these puzzles are the vibrant colors. Kids tend to be excited and attracted to bright colors, they’re fun after all! And the felt squares come in so many different, wonderful colors making this puzzle activity great for learning colors too!
