Uses For Advertising Magnets

Tips for reusing all those advertising refrigerator magnets you get in the mail.

Kids Art

You can cut them up and hot glue the advertising side to kids' art projects to become instant magnets. That's what I just did for my daughter's scout troop.

School Photos

As one of those folks who just can't stand a clean refrigerator door, I tend to post a lot of photos of my loved ones. Attach a cut to fit photo with double stick tape to the front of the magnet, and you now have a personalized magnet. This is a great way to get rid of those generally unusable, mini-photos that inevitably come with school pictures. Doesn't even have to be a photo - pull a great design from a magazine or whatever. The possibilities are endless.

Here are some uses for those advertising magnets that you're tired of looking at on the fridge: Put one in a desk drawer to capture paper clips, etc (just make sure it's not near computer disks, as magnets can erase data!) Put one where you work on crafts to capture pins and needles Using a glue stick, cover the ad with a photo or a picture cut from a greeting card or magazine to suit your kitchen decor By Becki in Indiana

Dart Board

Make your own metal dartboard.Design it anyway you want. Then you can make your own magnet tipped darts. Experiment on your dart designs. I used just a bic pen plastic cylinder with a small magnet glues on the top of the barrel. I also used a piece of string glued to the magnet.

No they don't stick to the target every time,but it is still fun playing with them.

It doesn't hurt keeping a magnet in your sewing basket to hunt fallen needles on the floor.

You might show your children all the experiments they can do with Magnets They can learn and have fun at the same time.

Keep for the Phone Number

I find it handy to have the phone number on the magnet handy, since most of the magnets I have are from business I use.
