Gotta love a craft that can be finished in a day! Hand painted magnets!

Need a rainy day project!  Just get some flat marble Gem stones (I get them at our dollar tree store), some round magnets (any craft store), sturdy glue (silicone glue works good or any glue that holds well), paint brushes (small size) and acrylic paint.  This is a very easy craft that can be done in a day! 

1.)Set out marble gem stones and go to painting them (remember that you only need a tiny bit of paint for this)!  You may want to wait and paint one layer at a time so that the paint doesn’t spread.  You shouldn’t have to wait too long between layers though.  Be creative and think of pictures/words/designs that you would like! If you are wanting to do dots use the back of the paintbrush to make perfect mini circles.

2.) Once dry you can spray with some kind of coating or just leave as is.  Then put a drop of glue on your round magnet to attach to the marble stone and let dry.  That’s it!

Tip:  You can also just look for flat and smooth rocks/stones outside to paint (you might need different magnets depending on the size of the rock/stone).  Make sure to wash the rock before painting.

Most importantly HAVE FUN!
