Pizza Magnets {TMNT Party Craft!}

Hey, party dudes!  Little Crafter’s party might be over, but I still have SO much to share with you about the crafts, the food, the games, the decorations, and more!  Today, I want to show you one of the two craft projects the kiddos made.  If you’re a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan, you know that the turtles {especially Michaelangelo} absolutely love pizza!  So, we created these fun and simple Personal Pizza Magnets!

If you’ve ever crafted with a large group of kids…or even a small one…you know that things always go best if you do your prep work ahead of time and have everything all ready to go.  I cut and prepared the materials the day before the party and set them out on three small tables so the kids could get right to work.  In case you’re wondering, one of those is the coffee table, one is a kid size table we usually keep in the playroom, and the other is the piano bench.  I made sure we covered them with plastic tablecloths to protect the work surfaces.


If you want to make these with your kiddos, here’s what you’ll need:

– brown craft foam
– felt: red, yellow, green, white, and black
– Elmer’s glue
– magnets
– scissors 
– pencil and round objects to trace


I traced the top of a glass onto the brown foam for the crust, a smaller glass onto red felt for the sauce, and an even smaller vase onto yellow felt for the cheese.  Then, I traced a penny for the pepperoni and cut small strips for green peppers, onions, and black olives.  Feel free to get creative and make whatever other toppings you can imagine!

The kids started by writing their names on one side of the foam so we could keep straight whose was whose.  Then, they assembled their own pizzas using whatever toppings they wanted.  It was fun to see the variety of what each child put on his or her pizza!  Some kids, like Little Crafter, went really heavy on the toppings while others preferred less.  Little Mr. T. here even decided to use a magnet as a topping. 😉


When all the toppings were glued in place, we added magnets to the backs…although in retrospect, perhaps we should’ve done that step first.  Either way works!  This was the second activity we did at the party so that the glue had as much time as possible to dry.

LC’s crafting-aged guests ranged in age from 3-10, and every single one of them had a ball decorating their pizzas.  They were so proud of the finished products!  I think they’d be adorable on the fridge, especially holding the menu from our local pizza place!  Here’s LC’s friend Mr. Why showing off his creation.


What about you and your littles?  What do you like on YOUR pizza?
