Stick Puzzles reusing Gift Wrap

Today we are starting up Project: Recycle & Create!

First up, gift wrapping paper, and we made a puzzle using craft sticks!

   Stick Puzzle

All you need to make a puzzle like this is:

Gift wrap

Craft sticks

Glue

Sticky tape

Marker

  material needed

Do this:

Pack the craft sticks out, the same size as your piece of wrapping paper you are going to use.

Stick them together with sticky tape, just temporarily, to keep them in place.

Turn it around and glue the paper on, making sure all of the paper has glue on.

Write the message on the back before the next step. I forgot and had to write on loose sticks, not recommended! Oh, and the 3 year old wanted to add his mark too:)

  message

Cut the sticks loose by using the grooves between the packed sticks.

  steps

And done!

I bind it together with a pretty ribbon or string and will use it as a Valentine’s gift!

Use different patterns of paper and you have different puzzles! For younger kids, use less sticks, for older ones, more sticks!

TIP: Pop these puzzle sticks into a bag and stash it in the car for long drives or waiting times!
