DIY Block Puzzle

 My boys LOVE puzzles! 
I love puzzles!
What is even better about this puzzle???
It is actually 6 puzzles!
AND you could do this in whatever theme you want! 
Think Christmas or birthday presents!
It is fairly simple.
Kinda time consuming.
But WELL worth it!

Here is my how to!

Supplies need:
Wooden blocks (I got mine at a local craft store.  But you could take a 2X2 and just cut it.
Paint
Mod Podge
Scissors, or a paper cutter
6 different prints of paper
Sanding block (not shown)

Measure out how big your blocks of wood would be together.  
Since my blocks were already cut I had to tape them together.
Cut out all your different paper. 
I always do this first before I paint.  
Gives me something to do while paint is drying.
Paint your blocks to desired color.
While paint is drying take your six different patterns and cut them into the sizes of your blocks. 
I cut mine to 1 and a half by 1 and a half.
After paint dries modpodge your paper to your blocks.  
I sanded in between patterns so that the paper wouldn't peel off and so that they would all fit together.
Then just let them fight over enjoy them!
Monster preferred to stack them. 
Then promptly had them taken from him after he decided to throw them at his brother.

LOVE IT! I have been trying to come up with a birthday gift for our neighbor boy! I believe I will be stopping at the store on the way home to see if I can come up with some superhero paper and do go from there. If I find the right paper and the project comes to be, You will know!
