Recycled Puzzle Butterfly


Yesterday we worked on our sight words using puzzle pieces. We worked on our sight word puzzles for a good portion of the morning. I have to admit that it paid off. I could not have been any happier when later that afternoon, Mai ran up to me with a drawing that she had been working on & said  “Look mama, I made mom.” She wrote it twice without any help spelling or writing the letters. This was her first written word other than her own name & practicing letters. My heart swelled.


In the midst of our learning fun with the puzzle pieces, we found some other crafty uses for some of our old puzzles pieces. We flipped our Doc McStuffins puzzle over & found two similar pieces.


I drew out a design in black marker on each piece so that they mirrored one another.IMG_0288

Mai colored in the pieces using crayons & markers. You can use paint as well.IMG_0289 IMG_0292

After coloring in the pieces, we used glue to dribble on random designs & then shook on glitter.IMG_0294 IMG_0295

While the glitter was drying, I drew a butterfly body to attach our puzzle piece wings to.IMG_0297

I colored in the wings & then used Elmer’s glue to glue the pieces into place. We made small & large butterflies using our old puzzles.


The result was these cute little butterflies.

Now on to the main event.

Welcome to Week 14 of  Mother 2 Mother’s Sunday’s Best Linkup We want to wish each of you a Happy and Blessed Easter. We hope you’re enjoying lots of peeps, chocolate bunnies, colored eggs, good food and having lots of fun with family and friends.  

We’re starting our April Showers theme this month. As they say, April Showers Bring May Flowers, but they also cause us to spend lots of time indoors. We’re looking for indoor activities for kids, Mother’s Day ideas, recipes, crafts, DIY, organizational tips, summer garden preparation tips, SEO and blogging tips. Anything that we can work on during those rainy days. Blow the dust off your old posts and link those too. Don’t have posts that fit into the theme, link up whatever post you would like to share. We would love to have parenting tips, DIY projects, homesteading, homeschooling, and your posts on family and life. Your linkups and giveaways are welcome here too. Anything goes, as long as it’s family friendly and you may linkup as many posts as you would like. 

Each week your hosts will select their favorite post and it will be featured the following week. An image from your post will be used on my blog the following week with a link back to your blog.
