My daughters and I love doing crafts and activities together. I especially like crafts that are inexpensive and useful (either for ourselves or as gifts to others) such as the bookmarks and coasters we have made.
Decorative magnets are another inexpensive, yet useful craft children can do at home with the assistance of an adult.
Below is a picture of a couple of button magnets my daughters made. These button magnets require only two materials (buttons and round magnets with adhesive backing – both of which I purchase at Walmart). Not only are they cute, but they are super simple to make!
The other magnets that we have enjoyed making require a few supplies and more steps, yet they are still rather easy to make. Below is a picture of the magnets my daughters and I made for my daughter’s vet themed birthday party she had a few years ago.
You can learn how to make these cute magnets on the post I wrote for Hands On As We Grow here.
What cute magnets will you make with your child?
