Magnets~

I've got a lot of scrabble tiles that I've managed to hoard collect for some time now. I decided to turn some into magnets for my grandkids to help them learn their ABC's. I used some thin sticky backed magnets that I cut into 1/2 inch pieces to fit behind each tile. (the sticky side helped remind me which side to place the glue on) I glued each magnet on each tile using E6000 glue. I've heard people swear by this glue.... I think it takes for'eva to dry...so it is not for those of us who like instant results. Anywho, after gluing each magnet on each lettered tile, I placed several heavy books on top of the lot and let them dry overnight.I think they turned out super cute! Now, I've just got to make doubles of certain letters so we can start making words!

How cute! I'm always looking for scrabble games at yard sales, thrift stores,etc... I can never find them... (now I know why!)

Hi Cheryl,
What an awesome idea. I've seen these scrabble pieces used for other projects too, like spelling out a name or word on a picture frame...very cute. I'll have to keep an eye out for them. Thanks for sharing your idea.

Blessings,
~Ana♥
