Magnets, Magnets, MAGNETS!

Our magnet board made from an oil drip magnet pan

3D magnets I made from nursing necklaces!!

closer view
These are examples of beads used for nursing necklaces. I kept ours, cut them apart, and used the beads to make magnets! I used magnet tape, I cut it to size. Then I hot glued a magnet to a translucent color chip from Lakeshore. Then glued a nursing necklace bead to the color chip.

wood tree ring alphabet magnets

Pictures printed from the internet of animals, plants, food, toys, and then laminated. Then cut and magnets were then hot glued to the back of them, I used magnet tape and cut pieces to hot glue to the backs of each laminated photo. I did not cut the magnets to the size of the photos. Instead I just cut a nice 2 inch or smaller magnet for each one, depending on the size of the laminated photo. 

Some of the laminated animals I made into magnets and a few of the Popsicle sticks I made into magnets.

sorry for the glared pic but these are glass gems from the dollar tree that I made into magnets.
