Puzzle Piece Lamb

What could be more fun than this Recycled Puzzle Piece Lamb created by the FreeKidsCrafts Team? Turn an old puzzle into a fun craft project with simple materials. Great way to use an old puzzle that is missing one or two pieces.


John Spilsbury (an Englishman) mounted a map of England on a thin sheet of mahogany board, used a hand held fretsaw to cut round the county boundaries and sold the boxed pieces for children to assemble. They were known as ‘Dissected maps’. Source: Jig Things – History of Jigsaw Puzzles.
