New York Magnet Clip Craft Kit
Cute and fun! Doesn't have to be NY - easy to modify for versatility.
I bought these for an "apple of my eye" themed craft. Our group replaced the letters N and Y with apple-shaped pictures of loved ones. I also printed and cut out little green leaves that said, "You're the" and "apple of my eye," and we placed them over the foam leaves with glue dots. Although the heart gems came with adhesive strips down the back, we reinforced them with half glue dots as well. The adhesive on the foam pieces covered the entire backs and stuck great! Although the clips and magnets seemed of good quality, we used card stock stands to finish our apples instead, so I can't vouch for the strength of the magnets. Out of the 36 individual kits I ordered, about six had minor flaws in the foam pieces, but overall, this craft was of good quality, was easy and fun to make, and is a nice keepsake!

Fun and Easy Project
I Let my 7-year-old grandson try out this craft before using at VBS. He said it was fun and he was able to do it without any assistance from me. I ordered 8 packages of 12 kits each. I don't know if my kits were simply missing an item but there was no glue or adhesive strip to attach the clothespin to the back of the apple form, so be prepared with your own glue, glue dots, or hot glue gun.

Wasn't sure what to expect for $3.99 for a dozen magnets - but gosh are they cute!! Easy as can be with the adhesive pieces - super quick to put together and look great when finished!!

good vbs activity
Good for elementary aged kids, K-6, cute when complete, takes an apporpriate amount of time for crafts.
The only drawback was one of the packages did not have the magnet strips enclosed, but luckily I had some on hand left from Sunday School
