Turn Kids Artwork into Magnets

by Tonya Staab

Turn that pile of artwork your kids have brought home from school into mini magnets. These are functional, and you can display so many more pieces of artwork.

Now that school’s out for the summer and the kids have stripped the classroom walls bare from their artwork (which is now in a giant pile on your kitchen counter) or in my case, in a giant pile on the floor next to my office desk, it’s time to think about what to do with it all.

Note: This project was originally created for Hewlett Packard’s MyPrintly website however that site has been taken offline. You can still find some of the project videos on the Hewlett Packard YouTube channel.


  • HP Sprocket App
  • HP Sprocket Photo Printer
  • HP ZINK Sticky-backed Photo Paper
  • Kids artwork
  • Magnet sheets


  • Begin by taking a photograph of your child’s artwork on your smartphone.
  • Open the HP Sprocket app and print the photo on the HP ZINK sticky-backed photo paper.

  • Peel the backing off the photos and place them onto magnet sheets. Cut out your new magnets and stick them on the fridge or a whiteboard. It’s really that easy!
