Introduction: Toy Refrigerator Magnets

Whether you feel like a dinosaur or a young whipper snapper, this DIY craft project is fun for all ages. All you need are a few, inexpensive items to create these whimsical toy magnets.

Step 1: Materials

Here's what you'll need:

• A Preval Spray System
• Small toy dinosaurs
• Small round magnets
• E 6000 glue
• Acrylic craft paint

Step 2: Prep the Sprayer

Unattach the aerosol spray can from the container. Use the measurement markings on the glass jar to add 2 ounces of paint and 1 ounce of water. Cap the jar and shake the mixture thoroughly. Attach the aerosol spray can, and you're ready to spray.


Step 3:

To spray, evenly sweep the can horizontally and vertically past the toys until they're fully coated in paint.

Step 4:

After letting the paint dry, it's time to glue on the magnets. Dab E 6000 glue onto the back of the magnet, and stick it to the side of the toy that protrudes the most. This is important, because it will allow your toy magnet to stick to a flat surface.

No bones about it, this is one easy project. Give the glue time to cure, and you're all set to deck your refrigerator out in style.
