Pacman chomps his way through the month on this magnetic calendar.  The dots are numbered with the dates; ghost, fruit and power pellets can be used to mark special occasions, birthdays, deadlines or other dates that you may need to remember throughout the month.  This is a perpetual calendar so once all the dots are removed, you can move onto the next level, I mean month and reset the dots.

Step 1: READY!

What you will need:
  • A piece of sheet metal
  • Yellow and white craft foam
  • Magnets (I used a thin magnet sheet and larger circles that I got from a dollar store)
  • Polymer clay
  • Black and blue paint (or instead of blue paint, blue model striping tape)
  • Metal primer and varnish
  • Paint brushes
  • Hole punch
  • Scissors
  • Pencil and ruler
  • Glue
I love your ruler! (the Instructable is also good)
Nic3 it must have 55 diffrent school uses
WHere did you buy the sheet metal amd magnet sheet
The magnets you can get a craft store and dollar stores. The sheet metal may also be found in craft/hobby stores or hardware stores or <a href="http://www.amazon.com/s?ie=UTF8&rh=n%3A16414241%2Cp_n_material_browse%3A16414551%2Cp_n_material_browse%3A16414661&page=1" rel="nofollow">online</a>.
Thanks did you only use magnets from the sheet and how much would you estimate the parts cost? I can't wait to make it this weekend<br>
They clay is a couple of dollars for each colour or just use white and paint it. The craft foam you can get a 100 pack for a dollar at a dollar store, magnets a couple of dollars the metal will cost a bit more so I would estimate it to be about $20 dollars or so.
Thanks. I'm gonna head down to home depot this Saturday to get the metal
Anything that combines Pacman and Sculpey gets 5 stars from me. Excellent,
I like this!<br>I think I might make one
WOW! This is so cool, I plan to make one. Thanks for the fantastic idea!!
Great idea and congrats on being a finalist.
I love this Instructable! <br><br>And check it out...both our projects were posted on this site : )<br>http://gadgetsin.com/category/diy-gadgets<br><br><br>
whats the size for sheet metal?
It was about 18x20cm.
This was a great idea! I'm gonna make a mario bros. one ;)
When I put the blue horizontal stripes on mine, I thought it looked more like a platform game. I'm sure a Mario version would look great.
