I babysat a lot as a teenager and had a fun bag that the kids enjoyed. In my bag was videos, puzzles, treats, books and games. My senior year of high school I was a preschool teacher and more good things were added to my fun bag like file folder games and popsicle stick puzzles. My little sis was my artist back then and did the cute elmo and worm puzzle. Stick puzzles are a simple and fun craft!

I like big Woodsie craft sticks for these puzzles much better than popsicle sticks. My daughter's the artist of this robot puzzle. She sometimes 'cheats' when putting the puzzles together by looking at the numbers on the back. The numbers/symbols are also good to keep track of which sticks belong where if you get more than one puzzle out at a time.
