Storybook Puzzle Blocks
To make these block puzzles you need 6 unfinished wooden blocks, mod podge, and storybooks that you don't mind cutting. I made a similar puzzle using pictures from O's 1s birthday party about a year ago, and I planned on using photos to make another one. Then I decided to do something a little different, and I hope she'll really like it :) We have several old children's books that have torn pages that I've been saving for a project, and I bought several elementary literature textbooks (25 cents each) for various projects. I decided they would be perfect for this! The books featured on the blocks are Frog and Toad (one of my childhood favorites), Little Bear (another favorite of mine), Goodnight Moon (O's favorite), Madeline, The 3 Little Bears, and Curious George. These blocks will be a Christmas gift for O, and I'll probably give them to her as an advent gift. I'm planning on putting clues in our advent calender and have her search (with my help of course!) for her gifts which will be hidden in the house. Hopefully, most of the advent gifts will be homemade!
