These DIY story magnets are such a fantastic and frugal way to create a fun and educational activity for young children.

This project from Catherine at Sun Hats and Wellie Boots uses cut outs from a comic book, as well as other images from a garden magazine, print outs from the internet, and pictures of her children in action poses.

All the cut outs are mounted onto card stock, laminated, and finally magnets attached to the back.

This is a great way to use old torn books that have seen better days, and to incorporate characters that the kids will recognize, including themselves!
