I used some recycled materials to make these puzzles for my nephews. The tin is from spices, recycled cards, coasters, and beads. They were inspired by some ball bearings that my son brought home. I like the old fashioned Christmas appeal. They make great stocking stuffers and can be done in cartoons as well. These are not for very small children though.

Oh, sweet!  You know, the tins are so lovely that I didn't realize they were roll-the-ball-bearings-type-puzzles at first!  Very neat gift!

Oooh these are way cool! I was playing with something like this (but really cheap and not nearly as pretty!) in the dollar store the other day. I bet your nephews will love them!
