Easy kids craft: Conversation Marble Magnets

Posted By Amanda F On June 18, 2011 @ 7:00 am In Family | 4 Comments

If you are looking for something that’s not only fast and easy but also kid friendly, this is the way to go. All you are going to need are some flat glass marbles, a black Sharpie and some pastel paper. These custom magnets [1] would make fun gifts for friends or even for a teacher. And of course they’re perfect for displaying photos on your own refrigerator too.

If you enjoyed this project you might also want to see how to make a foam water bottle carrier [2] to keep cool this summer, or a Cardboard Tube Princess Bracelet [3] for a fresh summer look.

What you’ll need:

Flat glass marbles
Pastel card stock
Black fine point Sharpie
Scissors
Mod Podge matte finish
Paintbrush
Pencil
Small magnets
Hot glue gun

Write conversation sayings on pastel paper: love, bff, or whatever strikes your fancy.

Place marble over the top and trace marble lightly with pencil.

Cut out circles, cutting the circle a little smaller than the tracing.

First paint some Mod Podge onto the flat side of the marble. Put the paper circle in place and paint Mod Podge over that as well. Leave the marble round side down to dry.

After it has dried, then attach magnets to the back of the marbles using hot glue.
