Magnetic Craft Sticks: Craft Stick + Magnetic Tape

Magnetic craft stick
We like all magnetic stuff. This time we tried our hand on craft sticks. Eek! I meant to post this yesterday. Hope you all had a fun filled and Safe Halloween!

Materials Used:

Craft Sticks
Magnetic Tape
Old Cookie Tray
Markers
Heavy duty Scissors to cut the craft sticks

Steps Overview:

Cut Magnetic tape as small strips that fit to the Craft sticks. Remove the adhesive tape and stick the magnet to the craft stick. In the picture, don't get scared by the black mark that's CJ's Halloween stamp,




Magnetic sticks ready for play.


The Magnetic sticks were fun to play with. Only problem we faced was some of the magnets kept falling out. To secure them, I added Masking tape on top of the Magnets. You can also hot glue or stick the magnets with glue.


We made Shapes!


In order to create Alphabets, I cut some of the craft sticks in half and added the Magnets.




We Built a House!




We made a Pumpkin Puzzle! First I lined up the magnetic craft sticks on the cookie tray and let CJ to color them Orange. Then we drew the eyes, nose and mouth.


Rainbow Puzzle! Just color the magnetic craft sticks in different color and assemble them to form a Rainbow!
