Fun for classrooms
I've used these in my classroom for 2 years. The kids make them the first week of school (we use markers and they work just fine). I do tell them to number the pieces on the back first to help them put the puzzle back together. Then we put the puzzles in ziplok bags, and I keep them until the last week of school. They forget all about them and really enjoy putting them back together. Then they take home!

Great price and craft!
I bought these as goodie bag stuffers for my daughter's birthday party. I wanted a little craft for the children to take home. These really fit the bill. The only con is that they don't come individually wrapped. Luckily, I had flat treat bags, so I just slipped them in.

Great for School project!!
I tried this out myself before having the kids do it. Pencils do not work as well as markers and crayons. They are great but when you take the puzzle apart after you make your picture you need to be very careful or a piece might rip off. Adults should do that part.

Great for party activities
We used permanent pens...and this worked out as a really great project for ages..even parents made their own puzzle! We separated the puzzles from the package using a spacula, and every else was fine. The best thing to use when coloring the puzzles are permanent colorful markers.

I have ordered this product for many years. This time, the puzzle pieces separated too easily. It made it very hard to remove from the package without it breaking all apart and hard to work with in an activity..

The kids loved this
We used crayola markers for these and they worked really well. The kids in our church enjoyed doing these. The upside was that we got a lot of puzzles for the money and it felt like a really good value. The downside is that the puzzles fall apart really easily so the kids have to color them carefully. I recommend that you have zip lock bags for the kids to put the puzzle in when they are done so they get all of the pieces home with them.

bad photo idea
idea to use as a photo on top puzzle but couldn't cut out without ruining the photo. Even if I printed the photo on plain paper I tried 6 times. it would be great as a crayon drawn puzzle or if you could print directly on it.

Great to give as a give away

We used these for VBS. We outlined the design in sharpie markers, then the kids drew on them in colored pencil - it seems to work best. (Crayons look spotted with wax build-up, and markers just look like blobs). Puzzles are great to personalize with your own theme/design. By the way: Use a light hand (light pressure) when using the sharpies.... if you don't, the bumps on the puzzles make you look like you have the shakes!
