Easy Craft Button Fridge Magnets

Here is a quick and easy craft idea that is a lot of fun to create.

Is your fridge covered in postcards, shopping lists and lovely paintings brought home from school? Well I know mine is and everything was held on with various stickers, blue tac, you name it. Then one good gust of wind from the back kitchen door and half of it would be on the kitchen floor.

A great way to keep everything in place and orderly is with fridge magnets, now I know you can buy these for a few pounds but wouldn't it be great if you created your own? Better still it would be very rewarding for your little ones to create their own fridge magnets.

Using old buttons is ideal for this but essentially you can stick anything with a flat back to the magnet if you don't have lots of crafting buttons around.
Nearly every house has a tin with a few old buttons or you can buy 100g of our mixed buttons here for only £2.99 with free shipping on UK deliveries.
