If you are looking for Mini Canvas Craft ideas for kids, then try turning some mini canvases into cute magnets! This idea is so fun and simple and kids of all ages will love turning a mini canvas into a masterpiece for the fridge!
All you need to make this mini canvas craft is some mini canvases, vinyl letters, paint and magnets. You will create an initial with the vinyl letter and paint over it to create a cute letter canvas once the tape is removed!
My post from a few years ago on my kids canvas letter art is still very popular, so I thought it would be fun to create a miniature version for some new kids art ideas! These little canvases are just so adorable and can be turned into magnets, ornaments or just grouped together on a wall. They turn out great every time, no matter the age of your kids (or adults) creating one!
These mini canvases would be a great craft for kids to make at school or a birthday party. They would also be fabulous handmade gift ideas for kids to give to parents, grandparents and loved ones!
Materials Needed To Make Mini Canvas Craft For Kids
For this project, you will need:
Directions For How To Make Mini Canvas Magnets
Step One: Simply place the vinyl letters on the canvases, making sure the edges are completely sealed. We don’t want any paint seeping through later!
Step Two: Give your kids paint and let them go to town painting over their letter and canvas. As I have mentioned in my canvas letter art post, give them a limited palette of colors. This will prevent the canvases from turning into a solid brown color.
Also, rotate the canvas for them if they are just painting in one spot. And once it’s pretty much covered, take it away before everything turns muddy. Give them another piece of paper if they want to keep painting!
Step Four: Allow the canvases to dry…the acrylic paint dries pretty fast, but if you are impatient, use the hair dryer to speed up this process!
Step Five: Once completely dry, take off the letters!
Step Six: Attach some strong magnets to the back with hot glue.
Or add a ribbon if you want to hang it as an ornament or on the wall!
Aren’t they so pretty?
I love them on the fridge and my kids are just so proud of themselves. Be sure to check out my canvas letter art for a giant version of these!
