Craft projects are a great activity to do with kids or for your to express your own creativity. One interesting project for a rainy day is to make some terrarium magnets. Terrarium magnets offer you a great way to blend nature with art. The first thing to keep in mind for this project is that the supplies may require a bit of time to obtain. The best thing about making terrarium magnets is being able to display the completed project on a refrigerator or any metal surface.

The most important items that you will need to complete this project are magnetic tins. These tins are the ones that are usually used for the storage of spices and other small objects. Make sure your tins have an open-faced top that can easily be removed. The tins for your terrarium magnets require a way to prevent rust from forming. Consequently, plastic is the best option to keep rust away.

You will also need a sharpie to trace the top of the magnetic tins. Cut a round plastic disc for each tin to use for your terrarium magnets. Another reason why plastic is ideal is that you will need to use preserved moss and air plants. Moisture will be created due to the humidity in most homes. One-half of the plastic discs will need to be attached to the bottom of each open face lid so the top of the terrarium magnets is open to the air.

The types of air plants to use for your terrarium magnets are based entirely on your preference. You may want to use the same type for the entire project or add different types to each tin. One other thing to mention: remember that the material is sitting loosely in each tin. If a tin falls to the ground then the material might spill out and make a mess.
