File Folder Puzzle

A long time ago I saw this great project over at My Two Happy Homeschoolers. My friend Jennifer creates lots of projects for her children. She's given me many ideas!
This puzzle uses two file folders, and cropped pictures from cards, calendars, and even a magazine! I used double sided tape, Velcro, and packaging tape to put it all together. The magazine pictures had to be laminated for durability. I also laminated each puzzle piece for the same reason.
On the front cover there are nine puzzle pieces, held in place by Velcro. I used a large circle punch to cut the circles, but you could make a simple square template and cut them out.
I actually had more pictures chosen, but when I cut out the circles, I realized they would be too difficult for M to do. The file folders are simply attached using clear packaging tape. The cards are attached with double sided tape, but glue would work, too.
M enjoyed this game enough that I will probably make another one using Christmas cards. Thanks, Jennifer!
