Geometry Lesson

I love spotting an awesome product to then learn that it’s a DIY project from a crafty mom! Case in point, Mer Mag came up with this very easy to make puzzle for her son. Here’s how she did it…

I went to Home Depot and had them cut a large sheet of 1/4 inch hardboard into five inch squares. Just this week I finally managed to paint them into colorful triangular shapes. I used acrylic craft paint and a sponge brush (don’t use a bristle brush, it will just frustrate you). To get the sharp diagonal I took a ruler and made a pencil line from corner to corner before painting. From there I just eyed it (taking advantage of the clean line a sponge brush can give you) but if you are a perfectionist you might want to try taping it off.

My original plan was to apply Velcro to the back of each square and then mount them onto the wall as a movable art piece. However, once I saw the “out-of-the-box” designs that little A made, I knew these were better suited as a floor activity.

    Jennifer Lopez is eager to relocate back to her native New York in order that she can take care of her kids in a “normal” environment far away from most of the glitz of Hollywood. The celebrity grew up in the Big Apple, though now lives in Los Angeles to concentrate on their very own showbiz careers.
