Busy Hands: Magnetic Photo Frames

As Mother's Day is celebrated during March in the UK and the UAE (and soon enough, during May in the USA), here's an idea for a cute gift that kids can make for their moms. As a craft, these Magnetic Photo Frames allow for personal creativity and making them is a fun activity.

We made a couple of these frames during a play date. I made the basic frames, and then offered a range of embellishments, glitter, and foam stickers for the kids to decorate them with. This craft suits toddlers and older kids alike. And I made one too!

Magnetic Photo Frame: Cute gift idea for Mother's Day that kids can make!

These are the materials we used to make the Magnetic Photo Frames:

- Magnetic sheet - This comes in an A4 size that you can find in a stationery or craft store. If you can't find it, you can use magnetic tape with cardboard sheets.

- Sequins, glitter, foam stickers, and other embellishments

- Coloured craft paper

Here's how we made them:

1. I cut out the A4 sized magnetic sheet into four equal pieces. 

2. Using four different coloured craft paper, I cut out the frame in a larger size than the magnetic sheet and taped it back, leaving one end open for the photo to slip through.

3. Then, I simply let the kids design their own frames.

The good thing about this gift is that apart from the personalized design, kids can personalize it with a favourite photo too. A standard postcard size photo fits perfectly in this frame, so you won't have to cut it. I used a photo of Little Dude as a baby in mine!

These frames would be great gifts for any special occasion and even for birthdays. You can also use the space on the frame to write a message!
