Discover how easy it is to make letter magnets instead of buying them. Simply craft foam, these directions, and a few basic craft supplies to make one representing every letter in the alphabet or to spell out a name.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 30 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.


Materials Needed:

Cut letter shapes out of craft foam, what ever size you want. If you want to use extra large letters, try these printable letters. Cut out enough letters to spell out a word, the entire alphabet, or someone's initials - it is your choice! If you want, you can even buy pre-cut, craft foam letters.

Cut small pieces from your magnet strip or sheet or use magnet dots, and use glue to attach the magnets to the back of your craft foam letters. If you have larger letters use a few magnet pieces.

Once all of the glue is dry, hang your magnets on your refrigerator. This craft project would make a fun gift for a young child!

NOTE: If you make large letters, you can embellish them using fabric paint, stickers, gems, ect.
