A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
That’s why we came up with this photo block puzzle. It’s a little like our Photo Blocks, but squarer and bigger and harder to solve, and with a bunch more photos.
It’s a set of blocks we’d proudly display on our coffee table any day of the week.

A Photo Block Puzzle, You Say?
After we learned to walk, people seemed to frown on us still playing with blocks. Yeah, well, now we’re grownups and we can do what we want, so we’re gonna play with blocks, dang it.
We’re just making it more sophisticated by gluing photos to our blocks and turning them into a big colorful photo puzzle to solve.
Leave a set scattered on your coffee table, and see how long it takes before everyone else starts playing with blocks too.
What You’ll Need
Step 1: Measure
Choose a square format image and resize it to match the length and width of your blocks (ours was 7″ x 7″).
Step 2: Print and Trim
When dry, use a ruler and x-acto knife to trim it to size.
Step 3: Apply Glue
Arrange the blocks in a square on top of the print. Position them so they’re lined up neatly as close together as possible.
Let the whole thing rest until the glue is completely dry.
Step 4: Cut Apart
Use a ruler as a guide to cut the blocks apart. Cut as neatly as you can along the line between the blocks.
There you go- you’ve got yerself some photo puzzle blocks!
Step 5: Repeat
The more photos you have, the more time you can spend happily solving your photo puzzles.
Step 6: Scramble and Solve
Make a couple of sets and have races to see who can solve their puzzle first!
