These creative and crafty magnetic letters will come in handy as students showcase end-of-the-year work on Mom’s refrigerator!

This activity is appropriate for:
preschool - 3rd grade / 3 - 8 years

You will need:

Before you begin:

  1. Print out the corresponding Alphabet Letter template for the first letter in each of your students’ names.
  2. Trace the first letter of each student’s name onto posterboard (any color).
  3. For younger students (four years and under), you may want to cut out the letters beforehand. Have older students cut out their own letters as part of the activity.


  1. Give the corresponding posterboard initial to each student.
  2. Provide students with a variety of collage materials (buttons, gemstones, beads, etc.) to decorate their letters. Encourage students to glue on the collage pieces so that very little posterboard is showing through.
  3. After allowing the glue to dry, have students add several Peel & Stick Magnet Dots to the backside of their letters.
  4. Finally, encourage students to take their decorative magnetic letters home and use them to display schoolwork on their refrigerators or other magnetic surfaces!
