ABC Animal Bottle Cap Magnet Craft

ABC Bottle cap Animal Magnet Craft www.daniellesplace.com

What you will need: Plastic caps from milk bottles, pop bottles and various other bottles, acrylic paint, craft foam, tiny googly eyes, low temp. glue gun, and scissors.

How to Make Bottle Cap Magnets:

1. Use the examples above to make your own magnets.

2. Glue large magnets to the inside of the bottle caps so that they are even with the edge of the bottlecap. If the magnets are too small or thin, glue some cardboard to the inside of the bottlecaps and then glue the magnets to the cardboard so they stick out farther. Test your bottle cap magnets to make sure the magnets are strong enough hold the bottle cap to your refrigerator.

3. Paint the bottle caps with acrylic paint. Cut ears, legs, wings, and other features from craft foam and glue them to the caps with a low temp. glue gun.

Use the magnets to help your children review their ABCs, learn to read, and learn more about animals and animal classification.

1. Have your child match up letter magnets with the animal magnets.

2. Collect pictures of animals and other things and have your children place the pictures under the magnets with the same beginning sounds.

3. Find out facts about each animal. Write the facts on small pieces of paper and place each fact sheet under each animal magnets.

4. Write the names of the animals on sheets of paper and review them with your child. If the child learns to read the name of the animal, place the paper with the name under the magnet. Keep reviewing until your child can read all the names.

5. Try to find books in the library that have stories about animals. When you have finished reading a book about a specific animal, let your child place the magnet of the same animal on your refrigerator. Try to read books about all twenty-six animals.

6. Use the bottle cap animals to study the classification of animals.
