Christmas Card Puzzles

by Trish Kuffner, author of The Preschooler's Busy Book

Christmas cards make great puzzles, once they are mounted, shellacked, and cut into pieces.


  • Old Christmas cards
  • Heavy paper or cardboard
  • Glue
  • Scissors


  1. Glue Christmas cards onto heavy paper or cardboard.
  2. When dry, cut into puzzles.
  3. The puzzle can be very simple and consist of only one card, or it can be more complicated, with two or more cards overlapping to make patterns and designs.
