Magnets at the Easel

Have you visited Deborah Stewart’s blog Teach Preschool
        I follow it faithfully.  
She is very creative and is constantly thinking of new ways
to provide activities for the children in her care.

One activity that caught my eye was her magnetic easel
          and handiness with a glue gun.

My easels are wooden so, on them, I placed a metal bulletin board,
             from IKEA.  
Then I glued magnets to the back of milk jug caps and green tongue depressors.

The colour and shape of the milk jug lids lend themselves to building flowers.  
         Single or in a bouquet, they look beautiful.

What other ways have you used your easels?


  1. Your a sweetheart and I love those beautiful recycled bouquets!

  2. That is amazing! Kids of all ages would go crazy reimagining pictures out of these recycled magnets. Don't forget to share this at the After School Linky Party at!

    1. Thanks for sharing at the linky. I'm featuring this tomorrow. Stop by and share more of your phenomenal ideas!

  3. I'm going to make some for my classroom and my creative 8 yr old daughter! Although I don't have a magnet board, I will use a cookie sheet instead.....:-).
