Jeanae from I can teach my child has such good ideas! The other day I was inspired by her post about making animal puzzles made out of two duplos. I love this activity- especially for very little ones. It got my mind to thinking though about all the other possibilities for duplo (or lego) puzzles.
The version I tried today involved stacking duplos into a tall tower, gluing on a picture of a tall giraffe and cutting the pieces apart with a razor blade. It was just the right level puzzle challenge for M.
My second idea was to write a message on a blank piece of paper glued to a duplo tower. I love projects that involve mystery messages, but we may have to wait a couple of years on this one. It was definitely beyond M's abilities to figure out how to put it together.
(The surprise was a little bag of craisins in the toy chest, for those of you, like me, who can't stand to leave a mystery hanging :-)
