Mike likes scary stuff these days and Addy, like most 2 year olds, is really digging pumpkins. Keeping this in mind I knew one puzzle would be a little harder than the other.
So with a sharpie draw your puzzle shapes and then mark the pieces with a number just in case they get mixed up. Because the rubberish/ foamish place mats are thick they fit together perfectly so go on and make lots of insert pieces. As a matter of fact, the more the puzzle locks together the better. Next follow your lines with some sharp scissors. Yup, it is that easy!
Here is Adelyn's... see how great it fits together. Nothing is more frustrating for a toddler than when their chubby hands can't make the pieces stick. That is not the case here!
