Before starting with my children I cut the white cardstock into 3.5 by 3.5 inch squares and drew lines on the back marking out 16 equal pieces.

Have the child draw a valentine picture on the white cardstock. Adding words and different sized and color objects will make the puzzle easier to put together.

Using the lines on the back of picture, cut into 16 pieces.

Next glue(try not to use to much, so it dries quicker) each piece to a Starburst.

Before packaging up your puzzle, try to put it back together.
