Duct Tape Alphabet Magnets

Posted by Krystal Schoenbauer on

Take learning to the fridge! Create you own alphabet magnets with some duct tape and cardboard. This is a great learning tool for younger children learning the alphabet, and a great tool for older children who are learning how to read and spell.

 

Materials

  • duct tape
  • scissors
  • magnets (3/4 inch round)
  • thin cardboard
  • paint pens

Instructions

Alphabet collage 150 pixels

  1. Cut out a small square of thin cardboard and lay it onto a strip of duct tape
  2. Place a small magnet on the back and flap the ends of the duct tape over to cover the magnet. Trim the edges if needed.
  3. Add another layer of duct tape, fold over and cover the square like you are wrapping a present.
  4. Once fully wrapped in duct tape, write a letter on the front of the magnet using a paint pen.
  5. Decorate the letter with different colored paint pens to make it interesting and colorful
  6. Stick your magnets to the refrigerator and play some fun letter games!
