* Easy Kid Craft: Homemade Magnets



"E" needed some magnets to go with her 
fancy fashion design magnetic display boards 
in her room so we decided to make some!

Tutorials for this project can be found 
EVERYwhere on the web!


First she looked through our scrapbook paper stash and picked out some favorite designs. 


Then, she traced flat glass beads from the Dollar Tree store with a pencil on each paper she liked. 
Carefully cut out the shape with scissors. 


We used Mod-Podge to stick each piece of paper to the back of each glass "stone"
(glue the paper to the flat backside)
Let it dry overnight.

It will start out white and cloudy then, dry clear.


We used a blob (super stinky!) E600 glue
to stick a magnet to the back of each
glass stone and magnet. 


She made some plain "blue" magnets with these blue glass stones
and below you'll see some more of her finished magnets. 


Perfectly easy, kid-friendly craft.
Useful too, she loves using them to hold up 
her art work in her room!

Fondly,
pink and green mama, MaryLea

Those are beautiful magnets! We always need more magnets to hold up artwork on the fridge - we'll be making some later this week! Thanks for the idea!
