The Steps for How to Make the Easy Paper Crafts: Farm Puzzle:
Print the two pages for the Easy Paper Crafts Farm Puzzle Paper pattern.
One page includes suggested colors for each portion of the farm puzzle.
The other page has narrow lines and does not contain the color suggestions.
Color the farm with pencils, crayons or markers of your choice.
I used two colors of green on the farm fields; two colors of blue for the sky; yellow for the sun; light gray for the cloud; an even lighter gray for the barn front; medium gray for the barn roof and top of silo; red for the side of the barn, silo and door; and brown for the lane into the barn.
Cut a piece of poster board, card board or chip board slightly larger than the farm rectangle.
Glue the farm picture to the poster board.
Make sure the glue evenly coats all the surfaces and no air bubbles exist.
If you have a brayer, use it to smooth the two surfaces together.
Otherwise, just use your fingers to make sure there are no bubbles.
Allow the glue to dry completely.
Cut apart the farm puzzle pieces along the lines.
Hold the scissors steady and move the farm puzzle into the scissors.
Use the pencils, crayons or markers to touch up the colors in the puzzle pieces, if necessary.
Here, the puzzle pieces are positioned relative to each other but not put together yet.
Now, we have a beautiful farm on a sunny, summer day.
To store, fold a pattern piece and include with the puzzle pieces.
It can be the piece printed with the suggested colors.
