I have also seen frogs and flower packs just to name a few more. I am sure you will find a set that your kiddo will like, they are all brightly colored and so adorable. Just a heads up, although it says “sticker” on the label they don’t have adhesive on the back (which I am still confused about how they earned the title “sticker”…?). These magnets are so easy to make. A set of these 3D magnets would be fun to pack in a busy bag and bring along on a car ride, doctors visit, or use at home for some creative play.
Supplies: (almost all purchased from the Dollar Tree)
Magnet tape or magnet sheet (I used magnet scraps from another project)
Glue gun and glue sticks
Clear finishing spray (bought at craft store)
1. Spray the stickers with the clear finishing spray. Let it dry and repeat until there is a nice clear covering. Let the spray dry then flip the stickers over and repeat the steps on the back. I sprayed 3 coats to each side.
2. Pull the two layers apart and use the hot glue to glue them back together to make sure they don’t come apart when your kiddos are playing with them. You will see a small foam pad in between the layers. Leave it on so the sticker retains its 3D look.

3. Use the hot glue gun to glue magnets on. Once the glue is cool, the magnets are ready to be played with. So awesome and simple right!

We found our small magnet boards in the dollar bins at Target for $3.00 and I have also seen magnet boards at the Dollar Tree.
