Soda Can Magnets

 

We recently went on vacation. While on vacation we took a few days to visit with my husband’s uncle. During our stay at his uncle’s house, Mai was offered some magnets to play with. In the pile of magnets, I saw a magnet made out of a Coke can & thought it was extraordinary. I studied the magnet & it looked like an easy enough design. When we returned home, I went on the hunt for soda cans to see if I could make my own.

I managed to collect Coke, Diet Coke & Sprite cans thanks to my friends at work.

Here is all that you need to do. Rinse out the inside of your cans. Cut into your can and cut out the inside portion removing the top and bottom of the can.

Wipe off any water or residue and lay your can cutouts out flat.

Draw out the shape or design of your magnet on the inside of the can.

Use the edge of a pointy object to stamp in details for your magnet. We used a skinny Phillips head screwdriver.

Glue your can print side up onto a piece of foam sheet.
