Homemade Refrigerator Sticker Magnets Craft for Kids
We all get them, from your local realtor, loan manager to your favorite local Chinese takeout place. YES, you got it.
In the form of local advertising, that may also contain important local contacts to a simple calendar.
This year I received one from our loan officer who helped us with our home mortgage (by the way we purchased our house almost 10 years ago) and a few other magnet calendars from random real estate brokers who have sold homes in our area.
Before you toss out those advertising magnets, let’s recycle them.
Your kids are going to love this craft and so will you since it costs very little. And for this frugal mom, I will take it. Plus, anything to keep the kids busy is a HUGE plus.
As you know, it is that time of year for advertising magnets. Before you toss them I have a splendid idea to upcycle them for a more kids-friendly project.

Instructions to complete your sticker refrigerator Magnets
First, you will need to cover those magnets with fun, kid-friendly stickers. I used puffy 3D ones for this project. Try to stay with stickers that are not see-through.
Just to avoid seeing the advertisements. You can even use alphabets stickers, puzzle stickers, etc. The ideas are endless.
Once your stickers are in place.
Simply cut around the stickers while in place or you can trace around them using a pen and then cut. The choice is up to you. I chose to cut around them while in place.
I thought that would be the easiest.
(sorry for my poorly manicured nails, HA I was trying to hide them to the best of my ability)
Then trim them around the edges.
You may have to add a dab of glue to the edge to help them from lifting. VIOLA!! Add them to your fridge or to a cookie sheet and let your kid’s imagination do the work.
Your kids will have fun playing with their new homemade refrigerator magnets.
