Family Puzzles

I've found that little kids love to look at pictures of themselves and people in their family.  A few weeks ago I made these Family Puzzles, and K has really enjoyed playing with them.  First, I printed a picture of each person in our family (I just printed them 4x6, but it would be fun to make bigger ones, too).  Then I laminated the pictures for durability, and cut each one into 4 pieces.  You can just give the puzzles to your child and let them go at it, or make it into a guessing game by holding up a puzzle piece and having the child guess who it is.  As we did these, we also sang songs having to do with families.  We sang "When We're Helping" and "A Happy Family."  You can find other songs & rhymes about families here.
