Combine an old magnet, some colored paper or wallpaper scraps, some glue and scissor work and you get a custom fridge magnet for displaying pictures. This is a quick and easy project to do with kids. Promotional magnets are given away by banks and other businesses for advertising purposes. If you don't have any kicking around you can request free samples (often out of date calendars or runs with errors) from many manufacturers.
The fine folks at Howcast used this project as inspiration for the following video.
