Foam Heart Tangram Puzzles

My boys love to work on puzzles so I wanted to make them some homemade heart puzzles for Valentine's Day. I ended up creating this quick and inexpensive busy bag idea that works on math skills. The puzzles ranged in difficulty. Sometimes even I can't figure out how the yellow heart goes back together!

To make these DIY foam heart tangram puzzles, I used:

I cut out four large hearts using a different color for each heart. Then I cut each heart into random pieces. Some are more basic, like the purple one pictured below, but others, like the yellow one, have more pieces and are trickier to put together. Just be sure to tailor the puzzles to your child's skills and age.

The boys loved putting these puzzles together. The purple one is really all three year old K could handle independently.

Five year old J, who has "very superior visual-spatial skills," excelled at putting these puzzles together, even the ones that were trickier. And here I thought I could stump him...pfft. Of course not!
