Here's a new twist on the familiar refrigerator art display: Turn kids' drawings into magnets that can be used all year long. Have your child draw helpful refrigerator reminders, a Christmas tree and ornaments, or candles. Print onto magnet sheets; cut out. To give magnets as presents, affix them to a greeting card with double-sided tape.
