I found these awesome little magnetic canvases at Walmart on my last shopping trip.  They’re in the arts and crafts section.  The kids had the option of using paint or markers, and they all opted for markers.

Now the kids’ artwork is displayed on the fridge.  This was a fun and easy art project and it’s totally open-ended, so that kids can express themselves in whatever way they wish.


I traced the canvas on some scrap paper and gave the kids templates to plan out their designs before they tackled the canvases.  This one is from Son #2.  He likes designing crazy-looking people and aliens.
