This later became our Family Name Game in a file folder. (Click link for more info.)

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.
The file folders are simply attached using clear packaging tape. The cards are attached with double sided tape, but glue would work, too.

I am a former elementary teacher, but now stay at home with my two and a half year old daughter, M, and our baby son, E. Though I am a teacher, I try to remind myself that M is just two years old, and try to keep all of our learning fun and enjoyable.
