First Day of School

I can't believe my son is in preschool!  Craziness!  Anyways, he's in the 2 year old program a couple of days a week.  His classroom is named "The Ladybug Room".  So I decided to make a gift for the teachers.  I almost forgot to mention, I'm in a group called MOPS.  I'm a table leader, and our table this year is called "The Ladybug" table...I didn't even pick the name!  I lucked out, huh!  So, I made these for the ladies at our table too:)

Ladybug magnets!  They are in the front and in the back is how I packaged it.

For the Magnets:   This project is super simple and you can do this with many different wooden shapes.  Just buy the prepainted wooden shapes and hot glue a magnet to the back of them.  

For the Box: Just assemble the box, put the magnets inside, wrap a ribbon around it and tape it at the bottom using scotch tape.  Then cut out the lady bug in black and the top in red.  Attach them to the ribbon using the dimensionals!
