Magnetic Locker Clip Craft for Kids
Supplies Needed to Customize a Locker Clip
- 1 extra large clothespin (found at most craft stores)
- Adhesive magnetic tape
- Tissue paper in multiple colors or patterns
- Mod Podge or glue
- Paint brush
- Scissors or preschool training scissors
Directions for Making a Locker Clip Craft
After gathering all of the supplies, invite kids to cut the tissue paper into small squares. Kids can expedite this process by cutting multiple sheets of tissue paper at once!
Wet the brush with Mod Podge, then use the wet brush to pick up a piece of tissue paper. Brush the tissue paper onto the wooden clip, then repeat the process, covering the entire clip.
Be sure to overlap colors so the wood doesn’t show!
Allow the Mod Podge to harden and dry completely, then attach adhesive magnetic tape to the back.
Finished Locker Clip Craft
Now the clip is ready to hang inside of a locker. This clip is also fantastic for home use on the fridge! We use ours to hang coupons.
