Best Idea EVER

 DIY magnets are the best idea of the week. EVER. Seriously. My heart rate increases when I think about how much these will change the way we play at The Higgins household. (Yes, I am a dork. If you've been reading my blog for longer than .4 seconds, you already know that.) So, check this out at
If you didn't click on that link (and you should), it's an article about using stickers and free promotional magnets that you get in the mail to advertise for things to create magnets. I have so many uses for these!

Here are my ideas for using these:
  • Use letter stickers to create magnetic letters.
  • Find Blues Clues stickers --because my boy loves him some Blues Clues. He'd love to have B.C. MAGNETS!!
  • Make JESUS Magnets!! Print off Bible Characters from DLTK , cut out and run them through my awesome sticker maker, stick to the magnets and create Bible Character magnets. THEN, Logan and I can do Bible Stories while I cook dinner.
  • Steal my sister Julie's Cricuit  and cut out all sorts of stuff, run all sorts of stuff through sticker maker. All sorts of MAGNETS!
OMG... I am so excited! If I'm coming to your house anytime soon, hide all promotional magnets. (I already stole them all off mom's fridge, Julie!)


  1. lol that IS an awesome thing. Your ideas are great. Can't wait to see the final product.

  2. Just wanted to let you know I linked this idea up (with a link to this post/your blog) at We Teach -Alphabet Group - Favorite abc manipulatives discussion
