I made several samples for Lexi before she got home from school one day and she loved it. They were made from oversize popsicle sticks and foam shapes. The Twilight ones were a little more complicated and I mod podged the paper onto the sticks for her, but she did most of the rest. I helped with some of the writing on the sticks. We had a great time and created 60 magnets.
Here is an up close look. We glittered some of them. We tried to make magnets that boys and girls would like. Also, some were up and down and some were sideways.
Here are the Twilight themed ones.
This is a picture of the area Lexi was set up in. There were four rooms packed full of children with creative ideas. The 5th graders got to shop first at the other booths, then they brought 4th graders around to shop. They all had a blast!
Lexi only had 11 magnets left. They had a worksheet for homework that they had to complete as far as profit, expenses and they have to pay taxes on what money they made when they get to their math class on Monday. The play money will then be put up because they will have more of these throughout the year. At the end of the year, they will have a big auction and get to use whatever money they have made and kept to purchase various items.
