How to Make the lowercase “m”

Magnet Craft

  1. Cut lowercase “m” out of gray foam sheet. To make the letters go along with the uppercase letters we’ve done in the past, this letter was cut from a piece of foam that was about 4” x 5”.
  2. Cut tips for your magnet out of 1/2 inch strip of red foam to the width of the bottom of the lower case “m” (as pictured above).
  3. Glue red tips to the bottoms of the m.
  4. Have fun playing with REAL magnets!
