Easy Kid Craft

These magnets are really easy to make with kids. I found the idea in Family Fun magazine, and of course, improvised a bit. To make them, collect bottle caps or root through your beer drinking neighbor's trash bin. ;) Pick out pretty scrapbooking paper, magazine scraps (from a seed catalog?), or even photographs, and cut in circles using a quarter for a template. Glue the paper into the bottle cap and paint with a thick coat of Modge Podge. You can add glitter, sequins, or other small trinkets. To finish, glue a magnet to the back (E6000 glue works really good). The bottom two magnets we mixed food coloring and Modge Podge, but I wouldn't recommend that. The one on the right has already faded out. Maybe acrylic paint would work better?
