Happy Flower Face Magnets

These joyfully smiling flower faced magnets are adorable in the kitchen, not to mention easy and fun for kids to create.

Approximate Time 10 minutes without drying time



  • 1 and 1/2 inch blue foam circle
  • 1/2 inch pink foam circle
  • 1/4 inch big pair of googly eyes
  • 9-12 inch orange chenille stem
  • 9-12 inch violet chenille stem
  • small fridge magnet
  • child-safe glue


These instructions are for one magnet and one child. Multiply supplies according to children participating.

  1. Have child glue two googly eyes on the large blue circle.
  2. Cut the pink circle in half, and glue one part below the eyes to create a mouth.
  3. Let dry before continuing, or the child may become frustrated by the eyes and mouth sliding all over the blue face.
  4. Ad

  5. While the face is drying, have child cut 3 pieces from orange chenille stem, each three inches long. Repeat with violet stem. If child is young, have an adult do the cutting.
  6. Have child loop each piece around, twisting the very bottom together. This creates the petals.
  7. Now let child glue the petals to the back of the blue circle, spreading them evenly and interchanging the colors.
  8. Glue the magnet where all the stems meet at the back of the circle. Let dry.
  9. Let child place the magnet on the fridge and enjoy their cute artwork!
