How to Make a Popsicle Stick Puzzle

These are really easy to make and fun for kids to play with.  One great thing about these puzzles is that you can customize them however you want. Just print a picture of your child's favorite tv character and it is sure to entertain them for a while.  I have even seen it done where the kids draw their own picture onto the sticks.

Materials needed:
8 Popsicle sticks
Picture of choice
Xacto knife

1) Tape your Popsicle sticks together.
2) Glue the picture on the not taped side of the sticks.  I used Mod Podge and I think I used too much because the sticks warped a little while drying.

3) Cut between the sticks.  This is the hardest step because I had a difficult time getting my cuts to be straight and to line up with the Popsicle sticks.  Then take the tape off.
 You are done!  It really is that easy!
Here is another one I made.
