  • glue
  • thin magnets that you can find at arts and crafts or office supply stores
  • scissors
What you do for this ZOOMdo:

  1. To start, cut out heads from the photos. If there is part of the neck showing, cut that out too.
  2. Then go through the magazines and find some bodies for your heads. Cut out the body leaving some room on the sides.
  3. Glue the head and body to the cardboard. Let them dry.
  4. When your head and body are dry, cut them out of the cardboard, trimming off any excess.
  5. Glue a magnet to the back of the cardboard.
  6. When it's dry, there's your magnet! You can put it on the fridge or give it as a zany gift.
