Dr Seuss Magnets

I love looking on Pinterest for fun crafts. The craft that I made for my classroom and for the giveaway was inspired by a pin I found. These Dr. Seuss magnets are what you get to win in the giveaway. These were so easy to make. So if you don’t win you can make them yourself by following the directions below.

supplies for Dr. Seuss magnetsPick your favorite children’s book that you would like to use. Make sure some of the pictures are small enough to put under the glass marbles. You will also need Mod Podge, a brush, magnets, and glass gems. I bought all of these supplies at Michael’s. You can get the glass gems at a dollar store also. They are near the vases. You will also need a glue gun.

First, find a picture out of the book and cut it out. I cut out a little extra so I had plenty of room to fit it on the gem. It was a little difficult to cut up such a beloved book but, it was an old book. I have another one that is newer. You can look around at resale shops for really inexpensive books. Second, you will place the gem on top of picture and cut off the excess.

Next brush the Mod Podge on the back on the gem to make sure the picture stays in place.  Set them aside to dry for a while. I let them dry overnight. My daughter had to make her own magnets. She loves using the Mod Podge.

    I LOVE LOVE LOVE these! I was cringing at the thought of cutting up a book, but the results are stunning and so worth it! I am going to scour through our books and find those that are in need of a ‘makeover’ and new chance at life! 😉 Thanks for the great directions- and idea!
