Kids love to see their own name, and with this craft they can make some really effective magnets to display their own artwork on the fridge - or to give as a gift to siblings or for Mother's Day, Father's Day or Grandparent's Day.
You will need:
Modelling clay (such as Fimo) in assorted colours
Roll some clay to a thick sausage in your hands and shape in to the letters of your chosen name - your child's, or the name of the recipient of the gift.
Decorate the letters by mixing two different coloured clays together to create a marbled effect, or using scraps of another colour to make dots or strips to press on to a letter.
Bake the clay following the manufacturers instructions. When hard and cool use strong glue to attach a magnet to the back.
