Easy To Make Popsicle Stick Valentine Puzzles

Popsicle Stick Valentine Puzzles

My son went to a Valentine’s party and we made these popsicle stick Valentine puzzles.  These popsicle stick Valentine puzzles are easy to make and are super cute.  Once we painted them, and it took a couple coats because the wooden sticks eat the paint right up, I used paint pens to decorate them. Once the puzzles were dry I used a small hole punch to punch a hole in the top of each stick, attached a Happy Valentine’s tag, and used twine to tie it all together.
