Fiddlebug keeps a lot of things on his craft shelves for days when he needs something to do. After finding a bunch of magnets that had old advertising on them, Fiddlebug got a great idea to make something special for his parents. He thought he’d share the idea with you, so you could make a great gift too! Remember to ask an adult for help if you need it.
What you need:
Some old, flat magnets (we get them on our phone books sometimes or at fairs)
Copies of photographs that you like
Flexible craft glue
What you do:
Place your photograph on a flat surface. Lay your magnet with the black side down on top of the photo over the part that you want as your new magnetic picture. Trace around the outline of the magnet carefully so that the line shows up on your photo. Carefully cut along the line. Put a thin layer of flexible craft glue on the advertisement side of the magnet and glue the cut out picture to it. Let it dry.
Mother Dragon uses her magnets to show off Fiddlebug’s artwork on her refrigerator, and to keep her grocery list handy on the freezer door. Father Dragon keeps a few in his work area to hold up Fiddlebug’s project plans, and keep his schedule in order. The whole Dragon family loves the reminders of special memories. Fiddlebug hopes you will like yours just as much!
Being a homeschooling parent for 13 years and an independent author/illustrator makes a person learn quite a bit about a lot of things. Now it's time to pass it on!
