As I write this post I have a sweet little seven year old crafter hard at work on some more Hanukkah magnets made with glitter craft foam......when he woke up this morning and saw how great our creations from yesterday look in the kitchen on the stove hood, well he just had to make some more to take to decorate his classroom! I just love the little candles (girl and boy) and the vials of olive oil with the googly eyes (above), so very sweet and I plan to pack them away carefully after Hanukkah to enjoy for years to come.
You can make your magnets in the shapes here, and of course in a variety of sizes.....I just love the large Hanukkah menorah! We also have a little bowl of sufganiyot (doughnuts) currently drying, and of course the numbers one through eight would be great too. I'll be back just a bit later with some more photos of our sparkling creations, and in the mean time, happy Hanukkah crafting!
- craft foam, we used only glitter craft foam
- felt- we used yellow felt because we didn't have any yellow craft foam
- googly eyes
- white glue
- magnets, we used an up cycled magnetic calender cut into little pieces
- hot glue gun- for a parent to use to attach the magnets
How To: Draw shapes of wrong side of craft foam, cut out and glue layers together. Set aside to dry, and once dry, attack flat magnets to the back with white glue or hot glue.
