Do you have old CDs sitting in your closet? Here’s a super simple way to turn old CDs into Character Magnets. This is a quick craft that uses up scrap paper and gives the kids a fun way to create their favorite characters.
It packs in tons of fun but doesn’t require a degree in art to turn out something memorable for the kids. I can see these CDs turned into all kinds of other characters – PacMan, Star Wars Clone Troopers, Mickey Mouse and more. This weekend, my son and I created 2 for our refrigerator.
Turn old CDs into Character Magnets
Materials Needed for Angry Birds Magnets
Trace and cut solid construction paper to fit the CD. Then cut white circles for eyes; orange triangle for the beak. Use a black sharpie to make the eyes.
Glue a magnet on the back of the cd so it’s ready to display on the refrigerator.
Make a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Magnet
Creating a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle Magnet is the same concept. Use green paper for the head; Red for the bandana, and brown for the turtle shell.
What will you create with your old CDs? I can’t wait to see your creations!
