Mother’s Day DIY gift, a cute Popsicle Puzzle from the heart…

IMG_9719

Mother’s Day is almost here and we have the perfect DIY gift idea. A Popsicle Puzzle…. Personally I don’t want my kids spending money for a present or need a big gift. The perfect present would be a long nap by myself followed by something small and meaningful from the heart that is cheap or free.

My kids love to color and paint. A couple weeks ago I had asked my 8 year old and 11 year old to draw something nice for our art wall. Both of my kids were not sure what to draw, so I gave them some inspiration. Paint something special for me, Mami. Something that I would like or has something to do with me. The result was two beautiful drawings that mean so much to me.

We decided to use these paintings as inspiration for our puzzle and Eva drew a third picture as a free template to use. But it could be anything, a coupon for a nap for example, a photograph, a card or a copy of a ticket (don’t use the original).

We copied the original pictures because they were part of the art wall, but you could also use the original masterpieces. Other than that you only need popsicle sticks or craft sticks, pencil, ruler, scissor, glue and an envelope.

We used 17 popsicle sticks which measured:

6 3/4 inches x 4 1/2 inches or 17.5 centimeter x 11.5 centimeter

We measured in centimeter and cut the masterpieces in 1 cm stripes (make sure that your craft sticks also measure 1 cm or change accordingly)

We glued the paper stripes on the sticks and let them dry overnight.
