Craft an easy conversation heart magnet with foam hearts.
This is a great idea for a classroom project or Valentine favors for kids to make at a party.
The conversation heart stickers are 80 for $1 at Dollar Tree. And you can buy packs of larger foam hearts at Walmart or the craft store.
I already had the larger hearts, but you could also cut them from a sheet of craft foam.

How to Make a Conversation Heart Magnet
1. Select a conversation heart and a larger foam heart.
2. Remove the paper backing from the conversation heart and stick it onto the larger heart, centering it.
3. Turn the foam hearts over and attach a magnet to the back.
I like to cut magnets from business card magnets because they lay flat and you can cut them to whatever size or shape you need.
Stick your conversation heart magnet to the refrigerator or other metal surface.
If you can’t find conversation heart stickers, make your own. You can find sticky back foam in craft stores or Walmart. Cut out your own hearts and add a message.
If you find plain foam sticker hearts, let your kids write their own messages on them.
