DIY Puzzle Piece Magnets

puzzle piece magnets on fridge

If your toy bin is anything like ours, it’s littered with random puzzle pieces that have lost their homes. I love this craft that reuses those fun shapes to make puzzle piece magnets. My son loves seeing his old puzzle pieces in their new life as fridge magnets. They’re perfect for displaying family photos, grocery lists, and children’s art on the fridge. Plus, he helped put this puzzle piece magnets project together, and I got the chance to teach him about the importance of reusing things instead of taking them to the landfill.
