Clothespin Flower Magnets

Colorful magnets to brighten up frige or other magnetic surface.  Spring and summer to hold important notes from Activities For Kids.com.
Use felt, craft foam or even card stock paper for these colorful refrigerator magnets. Flower magnets are easy for children to create. To keep the mess to a minimum, use a green marker to color the clothespin instead of paint which also requires extra drying time. There are two different flower templates that you can use.
MATERIALS:
  • Wooden clothes pins
  • Scissors
  • Craft foam
  • Sequins
  • Glue
  • Sequins, yarn, dental floss, thin wire (depending on which critters you are creating)
  • Yarn
  • Magnets
  • Printer paper
  • Flower stencil #1 or Flower stencil #2
INSTRUCTIONS:
  • With a green marker, color the clothespin.
  • Print out the flower templates and cut them out.
  • Trace the flowers and leaves on the fun foam and then cut them out.
  • If you choose, you can draw a few lines on the leaves to give them a little more definition.
  • Glue a magnet to one flat side of the clothespin.
  • On the other side, glue the flower (at the open end of the clothespin).
  • Glue the leaf near the center of the clothespin – place it in the center to cover up the metal clasp.
  • For a little more decoration, glue a sequin to the center of the flower.
