Sun Prints

Arrange different shaped items on dark construction paper so their silhouettes will look nice. Place in direct sunlight for a few hours. You will see the paper has faded around the objects.

Photo Puzzle

Get a photo of the child blown up. The child can glue the photo on to a heavy cardboard backing. With adult assistance they can cut the photo into puzzle pieces. Put into a decorated box titled "I Love You to Pieces".
