There are few things that are a versatile as craft sticks! We use them all the time for popsicles, of course, but there are so many other great uses for them. One of my favorite craft stick hacks is to put them to good use as quick and easy DIY puzzles. My boys and I have been drawing on them to make these puzzles but with the help of OnlineLabels.com, I’ve discovered an even better way to make them. You and your kids are going to love making and enjoying these Coloring Page Craft Stick Puzzles!
The reason these Coloring Page Craft Stick Puzzles are so easy to make is because of the VHS spine stickers from OnlineLabels.com! The labels on the page bump right up to each other so you can print off an entire coloring page without any gaps. I have a few vintage coloring pages available below but you can print off any theme or character that your kid is into and make a puzzle from it!
The only other thing to keep in mind is that you’re going to want to buy Jumbo Craft Sticks like the ones pictured above. If you buy standard sized craft sticks, the labels will fold over the edges and you’ll be left with large gaps in the finished puzzle. Once you’ve got all the supplies, begin by coloring in the image.
With the image colored in, now we can begin to assemble the puzzle. Just peel off one of the labels and adhere to the center of a craft stick. So easy, right?
The edge of the labels hung off the craft sticks a bit so I just folded them and pressed them back. Another option would be to trim them off. It’s your choice!
Continue adding the labels to the craft sticks until your Coloring Page Craft Stick Puzzles are complete! I like to keep each puzzle separated in snack-sized plastic baggies and then throw them in my diaper bag for on-the-go entertaining. We love pulling out a new puzzle at restaurants so that the kids are entertained and we get a few quite moments to enjoy dinner! Hope you and your kids enjoy these puzzles!
