Family Picture Puzzle

 I made this Family Picture Puzzle for J for Christmas.  He LOVES to look at pictures of family members (this book that my mother-in-law made is one of his favorites) so I knew he'd like it.  The puzzle is this Melissa and Doug puzzle.  I found it at our local TJ Maxx store for about $7!  All I did was print pictures of each family member (including J), used the puzzle piece to trace the correct shape, cut them out, and then used Mod Podge to adhere them.  I used a coat of Mod Podge over the top of the photos, too, so they'd be a little more resistant to baby drool and such. :)  I originally saw the idea at Pink and Green Mama.  She used a rectangular shape puzzle, but I liked the idea of using the house puzzle since it's pictures of our family and we all live together in a house. :)  I made one for my nephew's first birthday, too, and it was a hit!  I think it might become my new standard gift idea for 1st birthdays.
