If you have children you know that you will never have enough magnets on the fridge to display drawings. Here is a simple way to make some using salt dough. You can make this craft with your kids, or on your own, because salt dough is always a lot of fun, no matter our age. Let’s add a little fun to the fridge with colorful drop magnets.
You will just need a little amount of dough for this craft. Put in a bowl a cup of flour, half cup of salt and half cup of water, mix until you get a smooth dough.
Make little balls with the dough, one for each drop.
Pinch one side of the ball between your two fingers to make a drop shape.
Place the drop on a dish that is oven safe and slightly flattened the dough with your fingers. Finish to define the outline with a spatula or a knife if necessary.
Put them in the over at the lowest temperature for about one hour. I like to use a glass dish because the dough doesn’t stick on it once baked. You can also let them air dry, it will take a few days.
Once the drops are completely cooled you can paint them with acrylic paint. You can also add a coat of varnish for a shine finish.
Use your glue gun to fix the magnet on the back of the drop. Let the glue dries and done!
Ready to hang drawings and pictures on your fridge! If you have some salt dough left you may want to give a try making those candle holders.
