Making refrigerator magnets is a perfect craft to do with children. Not only can they see their artwork on the refrigerator, but it can be held in place by another piece of their art work. You can get magnets in craft stores. You want strong magnets, but nothing that will pinch too hard if it gets near a magnetic surface. You also want magnets big enough to glue on.

Then, just go around the craft store and pick up a bunch of fun stuff. You might want to try felt, puff balls, beads, glitter, yarn, paint, wood pieces or whatever inspires you while you are there. You may have a theme in mind, or you might let yourself just wander the aisles and see what you come up with. Both are perfectly acceptable. Craft magnets are for you to let loose on.

It's also a fun idea to make craft magnets for holidays or seasons. You can make gingerbread magnets, snowflakes, or Santa Claus for Christmas.

Decorate a magnetic frame for someone's birthday, wedding or anniversary. You will see your gift every time you visit his or her house.
