When I was a kid, Tetris was COOL. Today, the game still has a charm as one of the classics, a pioneer in video gaming.

 

These Tetris-inspired magnets are both fun and functional. Use them on a locker, to stick memos on a fridge, or play around with them. They are easy and quick enough to make a few sets as gifts. They make a great party craft too, and are a perfect craft to entertain teens.

Make them in plain wood colors to gift to Dad for Father’s Day, or make them in neon colors to gift to the geeky teen in your life.

 

One of my favorite things about this Tetris craft is that it spans so many ages. You can try it with children and adults of all ages – and they’re so much fun to make!

These tetris magnets are made of square wooden beads glued together. I used these but if you want more color choices and smaller beads (for more advanced designs) you can use these too. Try them in natural wood tones too. The type of glue you use can vary, as wood is a very lightweight, porous material. For children I’d use tacky glue. Adults can use a glue gun, E6000 or wood glue.

The magnets I used are very small, very strong magnets that are dangerous for young children. You can use ceramic magnets, promotional magnets cut up, or an adult can glue on stronger magnets using E-6000 glue. Don’t give it to the child until the glue is completely dry (24 hours).

 

Giving it as a gift? Turn it into a real cool “collector’s set” by giving it in a tin with a clear top. The magnets will stick to the bottom of the tin, holding it in place.

 

 

How to make the Tetris craft:

 

Start by planning out your design. Lay it out without gluing.

Glue together the bead one by one. I tried to allow flat sides (without holes) to show as much as possible, but don’t worry if some sides with holes show too. It’ll look great anyway!

Once it’s completely dry, glue a magnet to the back. Allow it to dry again before using it.
