    Do you enjoy making gingerbread cookies? This gingerbread magnet won’t get stale or crumble—and it’s useful! Here’s how we made our magnet.

    Roll & cut. Mix colors from Crayola Washable Gel Markers into white Crayola Model Magic® to make a gingerbread hue. Roll the modeling compound flat. Cut out your gingerbread figure with a cookie cutter. Or cut out your own design with Crayola Scissors.

    Decorate. Form little balls for buttons. Mix two colors of Model Magic together just a little to create a marbleized look. Press the balls on the cutout. Model Magic that’s fresh from the pack sticks to itself. Roll decorative "snakes" and press them on. Air-dry overnight.

    Add sparkles! Attach magnet tape to the back with Crayola School Glue. With Crayola Glitter Glue, add sparkling highlights to your magnet. Air-dry the glue before you decorate your refrigerator.
