When we moved into our first place I wanted to get some alphabet magnets.  The ones I saw online were a bit too expensive so I thought I could make them myself.



It took me just one evening, I used self-adhesive magnet sheets and did a top coat with PVA glue. The letters are all from KERA or GLB magazines :-)  There's *a lot*.  Around 3 of each letter.  I think I used 2 or 3 sheets of magnet (A4)





Those are some of my favourite letters, there's some more pics on my blog as well :-)

I love these! Much better than the type of alphabets we had with the plastic kind for my kids to play with! Really neat. I have several "word" sets used for doing poems. I bought those at a bookstore. Daughter and I had fun with them, and also I have used them with my son to help teach him reading. Very neat how you constructed things.
