School is officially out for the year which means summer is here! In a couple of days my entire family will be home. With all the kids here things get busy and crazy fast between all the play dates, book clubs, ballet/soccer/gymnastics, etc. As a mom on the go it is extremely important to me to have playful, educational, and healthy items that are quick to take with. This is why this past month I have been super excited about the $3.oo off coupons that can be found on Juicy Juice items.
There are so many things that can be done with Juicy Juice boxes and I have a serious love affair with Crayola so this deal has definitely been a stock up special at Walmart for us.
Right now my little man is in a major puzzle phase. He absolutely loves taking things apart and trying to figure out how they go back together. We recently gave the Crayola Color Wonders a try for the first time. They are absolutely amazing (no coloring on the walls amazing!) and they were perfect to use for this juice box puzzle craft!
Making your own juice box puzzles is the perfect playdate activity- a snack, craft, and learning activity all in one!
Items Needed for Juice Box Puzzles:
- Juicy Juice Boxes
- X-acto Knife
- Duct Tape
Once kids have finished drinking their juice and creating their masterpieces, it is time to put the puzzles together.
To prep your juice boxes you are going to want to cut a slit across the top so that you can rinse them out and let them dry. Once they are dry you are going to wrap the sides and back in duct tape. You do not need to wrap the entire box, but you will want to cover whatever parts of the box will show.
For ours we used six of the larger Juicy Juice boxes.
Using your x-acto knife, place your child’s creation on top of the juice boxes and cut out the grid. If need be use your scissors to clean up the edges and cut down to size.
Use a long strip of duct tape folded across the top of the box. This is what you will use to hold down the pieces.
I had originally attempted to use glue to hold the pieces together and seal everything, however the glue did not hold a tight enough seal.
The duct tape on the other hand worked beautifully and our puzzles turned out fantastic! Curious as to what other types of playdates you can come up with Juicy Juice and Crayola? Come see what we have been up to!
