SUNBLEACHED ALPHABET AND SHAPE PUZZLE

I was inspired to make these paper puzzles after reading the post by S.B. of, S.B. Creatively,

by Rachel

She took advantage of the summer sun to create a mat where her kids practiced letter identification.

We adapted it to create a few puzzles for my youngest. We created one with alphabet and letter magnets and another with different shaped blocks from around the house. It was so fun!

HOW TO MAKE A BLEACHED PUZZLE?

  • You need construction paper. The cheaper the better. I used high quality art paper the first time and it didn’t bleach well.
  • A sunny day, being in Texas, we have lots of those!
  • Shapes (alphabet magnets, blocks, coins, etc.)

I love how the block shapes helped my toddler work on early geometry skills. It was fun watching her rotate the blocks to try and replicate the image. Hope your kids enjoy puzzle making!
