There are always great discussions on Primary Music Leaders Facebook group!  Ones that sometimes you’d never think to even discuss.  The topic of singing time magnets is one such topic!  If you do a quick search for “magnets,” TONS of conversation starters pop up!  Anyway, I wanted to share my two bits about my favorite magnets, how I use and store mine in singing time.

I prefer magnets over tape and here’s why:
  • Less hassle
  • Reusable
  • Mobility
  • Easier for kids

I’ve had my fair share of crappy magnets and consider myself to be a complete magnet snob!  You know what I’m talking about…the kind of magnets that barely hold a single sheet of paper.  Never mind if it’s laminated or a piece of card stock!

I’ve come to love these heavy duty magnets:

They are strong enough to hold anything I want on the board!  Even my wiggliest primary kids – just kidding!  I haven’t tried that yet but isn’t that a nice thought?  Haha!
 
I bought mine from here (Amazon affiliate link):
I store mine in our singing time caddy!  Check out more details HERE
 
So there you have it…my opinion on magnets :).  Do yourself a serious favor and get some!  Because we all know it’s the little things that make us happy!

  1. I'm new at this – Primary Chorister – but I've already found something I love – magnetic tape! Walmart for $3.97 – in the craft section. It's in a tape dispenser and has at least 25 ft. Easy for "slapping up" visuals and not fumbling with magnets. I use about 3 inches for an 81/2" X 11" visual.

      1. Hi Lyman!

        I’ve never used magnet tape but my guess would be no. It’s not very strong. It will hold a laminated sheet of paper directly on the board but that’s probably it’s limit. I’d definitely recommend the heavy duty magnets I have listed above in my post to do what you need. I hope that helps!
