Create a puzzle that features your own artwork and an encouraging Bible verse. Consider using a rubber band to hold the puzzle together and giving to a friend as a fun gift.

Supplies
  • 8 to 10 wooden sticks from ice pops (such as Popsicles) or the craft store
  • masking tape
  • markers
  • a Bible verse about friendship or kindness (examples below)

Directions
  1. TAPE TOGETHER THE STICKS: Line up all sticks lengthwise so no gaps show between, and put two strips of masking tape across them.
  2. ADD A BIBLE VERSE: Flip over the cluster of sticks and use a dark-colored marker to write the name of a Bible verse, like “1 John 4:7,” across some of the sticks. Choose a verse about friendship and kindness below or read the Bible to find different verses!
  3. ADD YOUR ART: Use bright-colored markers to draw a colorful picture in the rest of the space on the sticks. Make sure every stick gets some color on it.
  4. MIX UP THE PUZZLE: Flip over the cluster of sticks and remove the masking tape. Turn the sticks back over and shuffle them. Now try to put your puzzle back together!
