1. Making Magnets
Refrigerator magnets are a staple in every household. These important tools not only hold up our documents, but they say a lot about us, too. Are your magnets generic business advertisements? Or, do your magnets highlight your travels?
If you want to show off your DIY skills, then why not create your own?
All you’ll need is some double sided tape and magnet paper. With those two items, you can make any design into your next favorite fridge magnet.
2. DIY Wood Stamps
Textured stamps are the perfect sensory teaching tool for youngsters. Not only will they enjoy the process of making the stamps, but they’ll enjoy playing with them for years to come. Here’s what you’ll need to do:
- Cut a thick branch into circular sections (your stamps)
- Use sand paper to smooth out the two sides of each stamp
- Grab any type of tool to add texture to your stamp (nut, nail, screw, chisel)
- Use your double sided tape to secure your stamp
- Use your hammer to create a texture on the stamp
- Use paint and paper to create masterpieces with your stamps!
This simple but awesome craft is great for kids of all ages. You don’t need too many tools, either. Since the project is low cost, you could splurge on double sided tape for woodworking. This will ensure you’re as safe as possible while hammering out your textures.
