Picture Puzzle

This six-piece desktop decoration showcases family photos on two sides when it's assembled and doubles as a brainteaser when Dad needs a distraction.

What you'll need

  • 6 (1 1/2-inch) wooden cubes
  • Acrylic paints and paintbrushes
  • Rubber band
  • Thin black marker
  • 2 photos (3x5 or 4x6)
  • Double-sided adhesive sheets
  • Scissors
  • X-Acto knife
  • Letter stickers (optional)

How to make it

  1. Paint the sides of each cube, leaving the top and bottom bare.

  2. Picture Puzzle: Step 2

    When they're dry, arrange them in a rectangle, unpainted sides up, and wrap a rubber band around them to hold them together. Using the marker, trace the rectangle onto the picture side of each photo, making sure everyone's faces fit within the rectangle. Apply a double-sided adhesive sheet to the back of each photo and cut along the tracing lines. Peel off the adhesive's backing and adhere one photo to the top of the cubes and one to the bottom (since it's a bit tricky, it's a parent's job).

  3. Picture Puzzle: Step 3

    Divide the photos by cutting along the edges of the cubes with the X-Acto knife (another job for a parent). Add letter stickers if desired.
