My son started middle school this year and he has his own locker. Of course, he wants to "decorate" his locker. I explained to him that stickers and other semi-permanent things would not be good. He was bummed until I sat him down with his paintball magazines and remote control car magazines and told him to pick a few things out. He didn't understand what I was doing but I then took the 5 x 7 inch magnet that had last year's school calendar on it and a jar of rubber cement. I showed him how he could have cooler things than stickers in his locker by cutting out pictures, logos, or whatever out of his magazine, using rubber cement to attach to the magnet and when this was dry, he cut out the pictures in different shapes so they didn't look the same.
Great idea!! I know one time, at one of the local thrift stores, where I use to donate my stuff, asked if I had anymore of those flat magnet things that some lady had come and purchased all that I'd donated to them, for her crafts. That by using this type of magnets, the items are closer to the item it's attached to (ex: refrigerator, etc) than being stuck out and easy to hit & knock off.
Aargh, I wish I'd thought of this when I was in high school!!! Great Idea!
