Want an alternative to plastic toddler refrigerator letters? I did! I made letter magnets using glass stones from the dollar store and my cricut to cut cute letters! Easy, fun and educational!

CRICUT ®: WHAT WAS USED

OTHER MATERIALS NEEDED

  • card stock
  • modge podge
  • clear flat backed stones
  • scissors

STEP-BY-STEP How-TO INSTRUCTIONS

I cut A-Z in 1" lowercase Alphalicious.
Cover the front and back of the letter in modge podge and adhere BACKWARDS on the flat side of the clear stone.
Using a contrasting color of card stock, I cut a circle (free hand will work) and adhered that to the stone on top of the backwards letter. Seal with another coat of modge podge.
Hot glue a small magnet on the back!
You can use patterned paper for this as well!

I would be aware these could be a choking/swallowing hazard, and magnets can be deadly. "Small objects that young children swallow can usually pass through their digestive systems without causing any illness or internal damage. However, when several magnetic elements are ingested, the magnets can become attracted to each other within the child's body, and trap soft tissues between them. In the intestines, this may lead to the development of a fistula, or an abnormal connection between segments of bowel."
