MAD (Mindie, Adam, Alex, David) Family Fun is the result of friends and family asking "How do you find so much fun stuff to do?" So, I decided to share with everyone! There are no BIG secrets involved, I promise. I just have a knack for finding fun and now I want to share it with you!

MAD Family Fun is a place to find activities, events and ideas to have more fun with your family. Enjoy!

Make your own puzzles

Are you tired of buying puzzles only to have pieces lost? Why not make your own, inexpensive puzzles! Here is what you need......

  1. Your own home made mod podge glue
  2. Some popsicle (craft) sticks
  3. An image (I printed mine off the computer)
  4. A Qui-tip (so you don't ruin a paint brush)

Spread glue over the back of the image and place it on the popsicle sticks. Next spread glue over the top of the image. Set the puzzle some where to dry. It should take about an hour to dry. Kids can help with this step.

The final step is an adult one. Once dry, use an exacto knife to cut the popsicles apart. Ta dummmm! A puzzle! You can use bigger craft sticks for smaller children and simpler images. I just picked this one because our son LOVES cats.
