Disney Vacation Photo Puzzle Surprise

What a great way to surprise the kids with a Disney vacation.  The idea is simple, as most great ideas usually are. Here’s how it works.

  1. Find a photo that represents the vacation destination, Disney or otherwise.
  2. Order a Photo Puzzle using that picture.
  3. Give the Photo Puzzle to the kids and let *them* put it together.

There are two steps to the surprise. This first is when they start to recognize the image.  Most kids love Disney. It’s fun and exciting and everybody recognizes the Disney characters and images.  Their very own puzzle of Mickey Mouse is so cool all by itself.

The second step is when they realize that are *going* to Disney.  Some customers will add text to the image giving it away in the form of “Thomas’s Family Vacation to Disney – 2014”.  You can picture the excitement and screams of joy when that hits their brain. We’re going on vacation to Disney! There is nothing a pure and exciting as they joy expressed by children.

I use Disney as an example because it’s a popular choice for families. It has been since I was kid. But the surprise Photo Puzzle can be used in so many other ways.

We’ve all heard of the sixteen year old getting a set of keys to the car for their birthday.  How fun would it be to watch them put together a puzzle of their car!? Ever December we watch car commercials with cars in the driveway with bows on them.  It looks great on TV, but not very practical. Give them a custom Photo Puzzle instead.

Not only will the present be a great gift but the Photo Puzzle will be kept for years.  Each time it gets put together, you’ll get to relive the moment it was put together for the first time.  The time it revealed what the surprise and the gift was. It allows us to relive the memory over and over, year after year.

It’s about creating and preserving memories that last a lifetime.
