Puzzle Pieces

Summary: Students can decorate their own pieces and then come together to make a complete puzzle.


  • Cut-out puzzle pieces (prepared by Imagineers)
  • Tape
  • Coloring supplies
  • Decorations for puzzle pieces (feathers, glitter, sequins, etc.)


  1. Most puzzle piece templates feature one generic piece that can fit with itself. Consider if, instead, you want to utilize a puzzle piece template that makes a complete puzzle.
  2. Hand out puzzle pieces to the students and have them decorate their own. If you want, you can introduce a theme for the puzzle pieces.
  3. Make sure you have a proper number of puzzle pieces to make a full puzzle. If necessary, have volunteers make extras.
  4. Put the puzzle together so the kids can see the finished product.

Debrief Questions:

  • Besides your own, which pieces of the puzzle did you like? Why?
