Puzzle Photo Album

*Please Note: This post includes Amazon Affiliate Links.

When I came across this blog post << here >> from Love Them Madly, I knew I had to make a puzzle photo album for my little guy too! I actually made it for his first birthday, and he loved it even more than I thought he would! He can take the puzzle pieces off in record time, and he loves to talk about the pictures underneath each shape. His puzzle has pictures of mom, dad, baby (himself), cousins, and grandparents.


This puzzle photo album was so easy to make and it didn't take a lot of time. First I ordered the Melissa & Doug: Large Shapes Jumbo Puzzle from Amazon << here >>. Next I printed pictures of our family. I printed out a lot of different pictures (in different sizes), because I wasn't sure which pictures I would use and where. When the puzzle arrived, it was nice to have a lot of different photo options, because some photos fit some shapes better than others. 


Once I decided where the photos would go, I traced the shapes onto the photos, cut them out, and glued the pictures onto the puzzle. After this was done, I noticed that the photos were getting a little scratched up, so I painted a thin layer of Mod Podge onto each picture with a foam paint brush. The Mod Podge dried clear and protected the photos perfectly!


My little boy loves to play with this puzzle, because it has pictures of his favorite people on it! It is fun to talk about the pictures with him, and soon I will be teaching him the colors and names of the different shapes (and we will call the diamond a rhombus, of course ).
