If you’ve been following me for a while you’ll know that I LOVE cardboard crafts. And since my son loves dinosaurs, we made a DIY t-rex puzzle!

Cardboard is honestly the best thing to have around the house whenever you get a crafting itch. You can make cardboard into ANYTHING! And trust me, I havent plently of carboard laying around at home and maybe you do too (thanks covid and online shopping!)
Our favourite things to make with cardboard are puzzles. Who needs to spend money on an expensive puzzle when you have what you need at home? Honestly though, the times that I have bought my kids puzzles from the store, those puzzles have not lasted more than one day without being destroyed somehow… can any other mamas relate or is that just my kids? lol
Even if your kids don’t destroy everything in sight, the money you save with making diy recycled toys is a win!
Cardboard puzzles are super easy to make once you know what you’re doing. We like to make puzzles about what we are learning in homeschool. We’ve made map puzzles, dino puzzles, shape puzzles, any kind of puzzle you name it!
Watch below to see how I put this specific puzzle together and check out this step by step tutorial for how you can make your own DIY Cardboard puzzle at home!
