DIY Father’s Day Puzzle


Father’s Day is right around the corner, so we wanted to show you a simple and inexpensive craft you can make to show your Dad how much you care. Nothing says I love you more than a handmade gift!! He is sure to love this Father’s Day Puzzle.

Something we love around here is when we get to use a certain product in a nontraditional way. For this particular craft, we used our Wooden Counting Cubes, which comes in a set of 100. You’ll only need 16 cubes per puzzle, so this is a great group activity since you’ll have enough for 6 puzzles with 1 set.

Wooden Cubes
Modge Podge
Paint Brush
Xacto Knife
Sand Paper

Step 1: Align your 16 cubes into a square.

Step 2: Print out your favorite picture of you and your dad and cut it to the size of the square.

Step 3: Paint Modge Podge on to the top of the cubes, position picture accordingly and then paint on more Modge Podge. Make sure to get Modge Podge on all of the edges and corners so the paper is completely coated. Set aside to dry for about a day.

Step 4: Once the Modge Podge is completely dry, separate the cubes by cutting between each with your Xacto Knife. If your craft participants are youngsters, make sure an adult does this step.
