Kids Can Make It #4: Cookie Sheet Magnetic Board

You have awesome flower magnets from the last posting I did. . . what are you going to do with them?

Make this!

This is a great, fun and cheap project.  We did this one with some friends and the girls were busy for hours!

You need:

A cookie sheet ($1 from the dollar store)
Fancy paper (about 49 cents a sheet if you buy it by the sheet.  You can buy a book and have leftovers for other projects.  We had ours on hand.)
Elmers Glue (79 cents a bottle.  You can get a half dozen projects from one bottle)
Ribbon Scrap
Buttons or other things to decorate with (find them around the house. . . you'd be surprised what you can find around the house)

Start by cutting your paper to fit inside your cookie sheet.  I used three different colors of paper.

Using a thin layer of glue, past the paper into the cookie sheet.

You can skip the next step, but it makes the board more durable.  Paint a thin layer of glue over the top of the paper and let dry.

If you are going to add decorations, now is a good time to push it into the paste.  I kept it simple since I had cute magnets to use!

Make sure to push down the paper when you put the glue under and over, or you will end up with a bump.  See?

Glue on a ribbon scrap so you can hang the cookie sheet.

Let dry, add your magnets and hang!

Love it!
