Fun With Letters A-Z and a DIY Fabric Magnet Board!

I am linking up once again for Monday Made It!  Today, I have two projects to share: one for school and one for home.

Let's start with my school project!
I made this set of letter finds to use with my incoming firsties during the first couple weeks of school.  We always review all of the letters at the beginning of the year, so these printables will work as both a reinforcement tool, and also a way for me to see who might be struggling.  These fun letter finds would be great for Pre-K kiddos and Kinders, too! :)
If you're interested in completing these activities with your kiddos, you can grab a copy of fun with letters A-Z {printables} from my TpT shop!

My second project is for my home... it's a fabric magnet board!
Gathering my supplies was the hardest part of this project.  First, I went to Lowes and picked up a piece of 12x18" sheet metal for my magnetic surface.  My husband advised against cutting it {ya know, because of the sharp edges & all}, so I went on a hunt for a 12x18" picture frame... I could only find reasonable ones on Amazon.  My next venture was to get fabric.  I wanted light grey chevron and ended up ordering it off of Etsy {no Hobby Lobby near me, sniffle}.  This weekend, all my pieces arrived!

Here are the steps to put it all together!  I thought I'd "pretty up" the directions a bit :)

I'm off to check out what others made for this week's Monday Made It!
And you know me, I'd love to hear from you!! :)

I love your magnetic board. Too cute! I wish I taught 1st grade so I would be able to use your new packet. Maybe in the future.

I need you to make me one of those magnetic boards for my house! It's simply adorable. Thanks for posting directions but my luck with craft projects has not been so great this summer... might need to wait until fall until my mojo comes back!

I love it! I have been wanting to make a board like this for my craft room at home as well as my classroom. I just love how useful it is while still looking nice.
