Magnetic Alphabets Toys are a great way to in­tro­duce let­ters to young child­ren, but they run about $10.00 and up at toy stores.  Here’s a way to make your own mag­netic alph­abet toy using noth­ing but old ad­ver­tis­ing mag­nets and left­over let­ter stick­ers.

I hap­pen to always have lots of let­ter stick­ers on hand from my sis­ter’s  scrap­booking pro­jects. If you don’t, check out the dol­lar store. They usual­ly have sev­eral styles of alph­abet stick­ers avail­able. If you chose a pack with a bor­der, this pro­ject will go a lot quick­er.

By the way, this is a great pro­ject for par­ent child craft time.


Step 1: Wipe the top of each ad­ver­tis­ing mag­net and allowed it to dry. This in­sures the stick­ers will grip well.

Step 2: Place the glue side of  each stick­er onto a mag­net. Try to get as many stick­ers as you can on each mag­net. Pat the stick­er down well.

Step 3: Using a scis­sors, trim the ex­cess mag­net from around the edge of each stick­er.

Important: Choking hazard! Do not make this toy for child­ren under three or child­ren old­er than three who may still mouth ob­jects.
