Magnets are just FUN! You give a kid a magnet and they will entertain themselves. Well, I recently decided to stop pinning and actually implement one of my pins, with a twist. We had SO much FUN!
The materials we used were pipe cleaners cut into small pieces, some brads and paper clips. You can use anything that is magnetic. I put them in a plastic container that I had and we used the large red magnet, which I picked up at Lakeshore.
I didn’t really plan the “Patriotic” theme, it was just what I had on hand:)
