puzzled

I had me some fun today. So of course you have to hear about it.

It all started a couple of weeks ago when I started making some Christmas presents for my young friends Liv and Sam.

I pilfered pictures of them from their mom’s Facebook albums and printed them on 11 x 17 paper.

Using some high-powered spray adhesive,

I attached them to a sheet of Borden’s foam board (easy to find).

With my trusty exacto knife, I trimmed the edges.

P1040037

I based how many cuts on the age of each girl, guessing, of course, their level of puzzle expertise.

P1040038

A nice stack for each one.

P1040039

Then just one layer of Mod Podge to add stability.

All of this was fun enough, but the real fun happened today.

The little sweethearts came to the office (their grandma is my coworker Denise).

P1040082

What is this? Of course you know, but their eyes were filled with wonder (not the awe kind of wonder).

P1040087

Sam gets the idea.

P1040091

Liv too.

Some “You can do it!” “Good job!” encouragement from mom, Abbie.

P1040098

Victory!

Victory! And before you could blink, they had messed up the pieces to do it again.

And I just stood there and grinned.
