  • Clear laminating envelope
  • Scissors
  • Clear cellotape


  • Put the picture into the laminating envelope
  • Feed this through the laminating machine carefully
  • Cut this laminated picture into different shapes for the puzzles, trimming off all the laminate overhang. Little ones can cut straight lines, curves even circles. Nothing has to be even as it all will fit together anyway make as many shapes as you want or as few.
  • You may need to secure the edges with cellotape.

If you don't have a laminating machine then glue the photo/picture onto a piece of cardboard

Cover this with clear contact (optional, but helps keep it in good condition).
