DIY Story Telling Magnets



Here at Play at Home Mom, we typically provide activities that play off of the interests of our children, but this is something I did with my students when I was a teacher.  It encouraged verbalization, communication, storytelling, etc. 

I created these DIY STORY TELLING MAGNETS in hopes that my son might take interest……to inspire him.  I would say he enjoys them – and I love watching his stories and imagination take shape - but he’s way more interested in playing baseball these days….hours and hours of baseball. 


THINGS YOU NEED:

  • ·         MAGNET SHEETS (and a printer)
  • ·         SCISSORS
  • ·         PICTURES – head to toe shots of friends and family, clip art, and/or pictures of toys or other items your child loves.


I used Microsoft word, inserted a 3x3 table, and then inserted a picture into each section.  This helped insure that all of my pictures were relatively the same size.  Lastly, I printed the pictures directly onto the magnet sheets and cut them out.


Playing with the magnets....everyone is riding a scooter or bike.  So cute!


 I plan to make more magnets – more friends and family, and more creative pictures that I know my son will love.
