I love magnets.

Have I ever told you all how much I love magnets? I seriously wish every surface was magnetic. Truly. I experimented lately with magnetic primer, but it didn't work out as well as I hoped with my overly textured walls. It was the biggest disappointment!

The other day I noticed I was writing a lot of notes to tape on my door to let people who stop by know where we are at. They all say the same thing: "we're downstairs, come on in", "we're playing at the neighbor's house", etc. So, to save some paper I decided to use up these business card magnets that I had on hand and make some magnetic, reusable signs for the door. Check it out:

The good thing about these is that I am already sticking paperwork for my babysitting kids to the door with magnets. So when a parent shows up they are already looking for it, and I can just place the magnets underneath. You cannot see them unless you open the storm door, so no unwanted people will automatically see them and know where we are. I also made a couple of blank ones to write on with a pencil if needed.

What do you think? Works well for us so far!

Until next time . . . (birthday post! Yay!)

I love magnets too!! I have two full magnetic wall wipe borads in my classroom, EVERYTHING is on magnets! I have a very cool magnetic calendar at the house that I love. What a great idea!
