2 identical pictures of your child (face shots)
*Take a picture of your child's face (5x7 or 8x10) and laminate it on posterboard, a file folder, or something sturdy.
*Laminate the second (identical) picture and cut out the facial features that you want to use for your puzzle (eyes, nose, mouth, ears, etc.).
*Attach velcro to the face pieces and the corresponding parts of the puzzle.
*Ask questions such as "Where are _____'s ears?", "Do you see _____'s eyes?", etc.
Other variations of this activity include using a picture of your child's favorite character or adding more pieces by including other body parts.
This is a great activity to add to your Busy Bags!

This awesome idea was passed on to me by a friend who used it with her daughter on a long plane ride. Thanks, Y!
