When I was cleaning off my bulletin board to make room for the new school year, I realized that my little magnets I had developed for the 'sticks and stones' story, were never shown in the magazine, but are a nice quick project to make.
I simply painted little pebbles I had collected on the beach with enamel paint. Then, once dry (which takes a while), I glued mini magnets to the back with duco cement. Even quicker is keeping the pebbles natural and unpainted. I did the same with small sticks, but must admit the pebbles are sturdier. The sticks however are quite decorative, no !?
