Feel Fabulous Friday! - make a jigsaw of yourself

Personalised jigsaw puzzles are a great activity for family time together and an opportunity to build your child's self-esteem. They provide time to discuss their unique features and positive qualities or a story that gets told as the photo gradually takes shape and relive memories time and time again, evoking the same wave of positive emotions!


What you need:

a photograph of your child

paper and crayons

scissors


What to do:

  • either find a photograph of your child or encourage them to draw a picture of themselves

  • stick this photo or picture onto cardboard- this will make it stronger

  • cut this into large pieces- with straight edges for younger children

  • you now have a jigsaw- try and piece it back together again

  • use an old envelope to store this jigsaw

Remember ...

  • pictures from magazines can also make great jigsaws

  • take care with piece sizes as small parts can cause choking hazards for babies and small children

Also ...

  • there are a number of companies who sell personalised photo jigsaws of family snapshots, special memories or favourite things


Personalised jigsaws can help build your child's self-esteem
