Making Fridge Magnets

Cloudy with a chance of meatballs magnets

Max loves his fridge magnets and he especially loves CheeseSpider from Cloudy Meatballs 2.  So, needless to say, our Cloudy Meatballs magnets have taken quite a battering from him.  Those that are left that is and not been dunked in the sink or shoved under the dishwasher.

So I thought I'd make him some more.

Using my shrink plastic I cut out some of the main foods/characters that he loves from the movie and placed them in the oven for 2 minutes.

One of the CheeseSpiders is rather large so I had to catch that one when it came out the oven and flatten it to stop it curling on itself (which is what happened the first time I baked it!).

Once the images had cooled down I got my £5 (BARGAIN!) glue gun out and stuck magnets on the back of the images.  I had these magnets left over from when we painted monster rocks (we don't talk about that).

I found the glue took no time at all to set and dry and I've now placed these on the dishwasher door for Max to see in the morning.

They don't take up much room at all so I'm thinking I'll add to his magnet collection if these ones stand the test of Maxwell.

Oh you know it's going to be Marvel.

So, what do you think?  What magnets would you do for your little ones?
