Take your middle section and put holes in the hands and feet about where the pin marks are.
Glue the middle one to the bottom then put the magnets in the holes and glue those in. the glue the top on and draw the face. Or wait and glue felt on. and if magnets aren't strong enough glue 1 more on hands and feet
