Hi everyone! Today I’m going to show you a fun DIY that could have tons of uses–glass rock magnets!
Here’s what you will need:
Large glass rocks from the Dollar Tree
Photos of your students printed out
Mod Podge (I used Elmer’s for my tester and it worked great! But I trust and love Mod Podge!)
Magnet circles from Wal-Mart (they are sticky-backed and come in a pack of 18)
The process is so simple. Just plop a rock down on top of the picture and trace it. Then, cut it out and trim it up slightly if it hangs over the edge of the rock at all.
Now, just paint a thin layer of glue on the back of the rock (the flat side). Then plop that bad boy right onto the picture. After it dries (maybe 20 minutes to be safe), plop the magnets onto the back.
Ta-da! You’re finished! I’m glad I did a tester because as you can see, these turn out way better if the photo has a nice light background. Print your photos big enough to fill the glass rock too.
You could use these for so many reasons!
1. Lunch count
2. Parent gifts
3. Center/ work station management
4. A magnetic behavior chart
What other uses can you think of?
