Picture Magnets

Materials

  1. Magnetic tape (found at office supply or craft stores)
  2. White unlined index cards
  3. Markers, paints, crayons
  4. Photographs, magazine pictures and words

Directions

Cut the index card in the shape of the magnet. Look at the picture you plan to glue on it to get ideas for shapes; if you're doing an animal collage, perhaps a dog bowl; a winter theme might be in the shape of a sled. Decorate the index cards before gluing on the pictures. Write captions or glue on words from magazines in collage style. Glue the magnetic strip onto the back.
