Hey all!

Well... this summer I created some "puzzle banners" - basically big puzzles!  The first one was for my family at a get-together... I gave everyone a piece and had them colour it, then we put it together on a background. (I had outlined where their piece should go... just to make it quicker... and easier since it took some longer than others to finish their pieces... so it was neat seeing the picture slowly form.)   My mom loved it so much that she made me do another puzzle (I just made the pieces and got it ready) and had her kids at the school colour their own piece! (She has about 27 kids... the pic only shows a few of them)  It is so great to do, because it doesn't matter how well the individual colours... it's the final picture that matters!  So the display was very unique!  Here's what they both look like:

That is such a great idea.  They did something like this in Seattle with famous works of art--everyone got a square to paint and then they put it all together.  You could really do a lot of neat things with this idea.  I was thinking about enlarging a picture and having guests all color parts of the picture--like a picture of the couple at a wedding and the picture squares could be at the tables along with crayons and the assembled picture would be great as a memento for the bride and groom.  I need to think of reasons for me to do this since I am already married and am not a teacher and don't have family reunions.....
