These fun cork alphabet magnets are super fun to make and can help in teaching kids their letters with added colorful touch.
These cork alphabet magnets are cute colorful and so easy to make.
This is one of our favorite kids crafts and can be made at anytime throughout the year. Although, I love the idea of making this as a back to school craft to get the little ones excited for the coming school year.
We are obsessed with magnet crafts over here. We love the idea of being able to stick them on the refrigerator or painted oil pan we have handing on the wall in the playroom.
Learning Your Letters
These are great for those kiddos that are at the age when their learning the letters and beginning to spell, like our very own Girl!
We love the idea of making letters as a craft. There are so many benefits including:
- learning your letters
- having them write the letters out and see what capitals and lower case letters look like
- allowing them to visually put together words
Okay, here is how you make them.
Supplies to Make Cool Cork Letters
- 2 packages of 4 Cork Squares – 4 inches
- 1 package of 50 mini-magnets
- variety of acrylic craft paint
- hot glue gun with glue
How To Make Letter Magnets
Using the scissors we first cut up the cork squares each into 6 pieces – once in half and then each of the halves cut into three pieces. This results in (48 piece) — we only had one version of the letters (g,j,q,x,z)
Next its time to paint. We have some glittery paint, but unfortunately it didn’t come up as clear on the cork, so we would recommend sticking with bolder, brighter, matte colors.
Once the squares are painted, I used a black paint and painted on the letters over.
Using the hot glue, apply a small dot of glue to the magnet and then attach to the back of the cork letter in the middle of the rectangle.
There you have your self a great collection of new cork alphabet magnets.
We’ve been having a great time working through our letters and working on some fun spelling words.
There are of course, a ton of other great crafts you can do with magnets like:
Running a Magnet through Sand
Hope you enjoyed your fun with magnets.
