Arts and Crafts, Science, Math, and Reading
Here's an Arts and Crafts Project from a November 2010 post on Animals. I'm repeating it because it uses a magnet.
- magnetic tape (cut to same length as clothespin)
- small cotton pom poms (green or other fun colors) (approx. 5)
- white glue
- googly eyes (2)
- Stick the magnetic tape to the bottom of the clothespin.
- Glue the pom poms to the top of the clothespin.
- Then glue the eyes to the front pom pom (the end of the clothespin that opens).
Another simple Arts and Crafts Project that uses magnets are these wooden butterflies.
- wooden butterfly shape
- magnetic tape (cut to width of butterfly)
- glitter glue (or paint, crayons, or markers)
- Stick the magnetic tape to the bottom of the wooden butterfly shape.
- Decorate the top of the butterfly with the glitter glue (or paint, crayons, or markers).
- Let the glitter glue dry overnight.
This activity can also be used as a math lesson on symmetry.
