Have a jigsaw puzzle with missing pieces? You totally do!

Check out the following ideas for ways to re-use the pieces from incomplete jigsaw puzzles:

About the Author

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now. Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.

    I love these ideas! We have a few Bella Sara puzzles that are missing pieces, but the kiddo still enjoys making the puzzles. In a few years though, I should have lots of fun puzzle fodder!
