DIY Fridge Magnets

I think most people use fridge magnets either as a reminder of the places they visited or simply as a support for the short messages for the other family members. Something like: “Take out the trash!” or “Don’t forget to buy milk!”. Well, if you have the most basic skills, but a lot of will and some kids around then you can do these fridge magnets yourself and turn them into personalized fridge magnets. I do advise you to do this activity with your kids because this way you can spend some quality time together doing something useful and teach them some valuable lessons, too.

So the first step is to purchase the magnets. You can buy either small round magnets that can be found at the local crafts store or even a magnetic strip that you can purchase from the internet (Amazon) for just$2.59. After that you simply use your imagination and decide of fridge magnet you want to have.

Here are some ideas: draw the letters of the alphabet, the numbers, flowers, everything then cut them and glue the picture on some hard cardboard. You can choose some old or new photos of the family and cut them in heart shape, etc. Glue the magnet on the back of the cardboard and … this is it: your own personalized fridge magnet.This will help your memory and turn into fine memories.
