Photo Puzzle Blocks: A Perfect Gift for (Almost) All Ages

Q: What happens when photos, paper and Glue Dots® get together with wood blocks? 
A: A photo puzzle is born!

These photo puzzle blocks make the perfect gift for kids 3 to 93! The puzzle is easy to make and can be completed in a few hours, including drying time. Here's what you'll need to do:

Gather Supplies:

1. Cut a photograph into 12 1" squares.
2. Adhere the squares to the wood blocks by placing one Craft Glue Dot® into the center of each square and Mini Glue Dots® on each corner.
3. Repeat Steps 1 & 2 with the remaining photographs and paper.
4. Gently sand the edges of each wood block. (This is optional, but will help clean up the edges and mask imperfections.)
5. Brush a light coat of decoupage onto the blocks to seal them and let dry. Repeat if necessary.

A simple and thoughtful gift for children or loved ones, photo puzzle blocks are sure to provide a few smiles and endless fun.
