Magnet Cups for the Fridge
Plastic Cup- $.50 - .95 Walmart
Magnets- $3 for 52 Walmart
Super Glue- $1 Target (I used Scotch, found it in the dollar section)
UNDER $1 to make!!
I have 4 kids. 3 which are independent enough to get their own water out of the built in fridge spout. However, not responsible enough to use only 1 cup a day! I wash at least 6 cups a day! Most of which probably just had water but I'm not trusting it. So, picking my battles, I decided to make it easier on them.
Just super glue 2 magnets to the back of the cup.
Press for at least 40 seconds.
Let sit for 30 minutes.
Put on fridge!
Now they just grab their cup, fill it with water, drink it all (that is key), and put it back.
Hand wash every couple days!
Please ask any questions you have!
Let me know what you think!
Great idea! Now only if my husband will follow suit. Why, oh why is it necessary to use 3-5 cups a day?!ReplyDelete
Thanks for the idea.
I'm glad you like the idea! Having had these now almost 2 months I'm happy to say they are still holding up perfectly! The kids use them everyday and now I don't have multiple cups to wash everyday. I have even run them through the dishwasher, with the air dry setting, and the magnets have stayed on!Delete
Oh wow love idea im fightn this with my kids now that i read this im doing thanxs so muchReplyDelete
Glad you like them! Enjoy!Delete
Is that dishwasher safe or hand wash only?ReplyDelete
I have had no problem with them in the dishwasher! The magnets are still on and haven't come lose yet! Have fun!Delete
Thank you so much for this idea!! I'm willing to try anything. I have 2, 3 & 4 yr old boys and I'm taking their sippy cups away soon - that they take with them all over the house, want something to drink an hour later, no surprise I can't find their cup so I get a new one, and at the end of the day I've used 6-9 cups or more! So I'm trying to find a solution to having them learn to A) drink more water and B) keep their cup in the kitchen and ultimately one area so we can reuse them. My 2 yr old just figured out the water/ice dispenser so this might actually work. Thanks again :)ReplyDelete
I'm happy to report, that I'm still using the same exact cups as I made here and they are still intact! I run them through the dishwasher with the heat dryer and the magnets have never fallen off! Top rack of course. My kids still love them!!ReplyDelete
This is the best idea EVER! My son & nieces go thru cups like its their job. I end up with a sink full of cups. So going to try this. Thanks!!!ReplyDelete
Update: The cups are still intact and I haven't had any problems! I even stick them in the dishwasher, top and bottom rack, with the heat seating! Not a single magnet has fallen off! The cups have warped a little from the bottom rack heat but that's my fault :-/. Enjoy everyone!ReplyDelete
my kids never finish the water....are your kids good about dumping out the water and then sticking them on the fridge?ReplyDelete
Yes they are. Although my 2 year old leaves a little water in them and it still sticks without a problem :)Delete

Maybe a magnetic strip would work better. Solves swallowing hazard. Love the idea.ReplyDelete
Make sure you use magnets that are too big for little kids to swallow just in case one didn't stick as well and came off.ReplyDelete
These are nice magnet cups for fridge to use.Thanks for sharing this blog.ReplyDelete

Just wanted to add, for anyone who has kids younger than about 5-6 yrs old, you should know that magnets (especially easily-swallowed round ones) are hazardous not only for choking but for intestinal damage. For families with young kids, Velcro or magnetic strips would be safer! They actually make command strips now that work like velcro too, if you don't want sticky Velcro permanently on your fridge!ReplyDelete
