A few weeks ago we sat down and watched the new Dreamwork's Trolls movie and decided to whip up a little craft project in honor of the movie. She absolutely LOVES those adorable Trolls! This project is something the older kids can do, but I do recommend that ONLY the adults do the laminating process if you're using a laminating machine. If not, you can purchase 'cold' laminating sticky sheets at your local craft store.
Kid's Craft Project: Trolls Theme'd Refrigerator Magnets
Laminating Machine or Self-Stick Laminating Sheets
White Cardstock Sheets
Markers, Colored Pencils or Crayons
Some of the refrigerator magnets that we made were made from Trolls theme'd glitter stickers and some were made from cut-outs that my granddaughter colored. You can also make them by printing out Trolls designs from the internet.
If using a laminating machine, ONLY an adult should do this step. Place the cut-out items between two laminating sheets and run through your machine per manufacturer's instructions. Let cool. Once they're cool, have the child cut out each design around the edge, leaving a small space around each edge to keep the design sealed underneath the plastic. We left 1/16" of an inch edge.
If you're using self-stick "cold" laminating sheets, read the package directions. Usually, you just stick the cut-outs between the two sheets and then cut them out. The don't need to be ran through a machine and are readily available at most craft supply stores.
Flip them over and apply magnets on the back. We used self-adhesive magnets that we picked up at the craft store. You're done!
