Camille's Primary Ideas: SINGING TIME ORGANIZATION SERIES Part 6 - Magnets

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:

Camille's Primary Ideas: Heavy Duty Magnets are an essential primary prop to purchase
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 Amazon here (this is an affiliate link below where I make a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase. But know that I only suggest what I love!):

I store mine in my church bag as these are my own (they serve a dual purpose for me as I have a HUGE magnet board in my house – hence being the magnet snob!).
 
 
But you may want to ask the primary if they would be interested in purchasing magnets to be used by the primary that will stay in the closet.
 
UPDATE:  Since posting this, I’ve purchased heavy duty magnets for the primary closet and everyone has thanked me!  Check out Part 7 in my SINGING TIME ORGANIZATION SERIES for more details!
 
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!
 
These posts are part of my Singing Time Organization Series.  You can find all my posts in this series HERE.  I suggest reading them from the last post to the most recent so they are in chronological order.

    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.
