My son and I love to find fun ways to create gifts to give to the grandparents. These bottle cap magnets are just that. They are fun and a great gift for family and friends. They're also a great way to recycle.

How We Did It

Bottle Cap Magnets
I like to get all my supplies out and ready before my son and I sit down to work on a project.

Since my son is younger, I cut out the pictures and artwork we used to make the magnets with. I used a scrapbook tool I had for the pictures but found that scrapbook scissors worked great too.

I also cut the adhesive magnets into smaller pieces. My four-year-old couldn't wait to get started on this craft. He loved the idea that we were making our own magnets to give away and keep. My son sat down and peeled the backing off the magnets and stuck them to the bottle caps. We added a few plastic lids in with our bottle caps to see if they would make good magnets.

My son added glue to the inside of the bottle caps.

Next, he placed the picture on the glue and pressed it down. He and I repeated this for each bottle cap and lid we had. He had lots of fun with this.

We found that the lids did not stick to the fridge. (The lids were too heavy for our magnets.) If you have a stronger magnet, then it might work. However, I just added yarn to the back of the lids with glue. Once the lids were dry, my son and I hung them with magnet clips and it worked.

Now the two of us had a great gift to wrap for our family and friends. My son liked them so much he had to keep one. I can see us making many more of these in the future.
