I am happy to present this idea to you, which is very effective thanks to the quality and strength of your super magnets. These clothes peg magnets are "très funny" and can easily be made by children. They will certainly be full of pride when they can give these pegs to friends and family at parties and birthdays.
First, choose an attractive design character, print or copy it, or even use a drawing done by your child. I recommend a size of 5 to 7 cm, so you might need to reduce the size of the picture.
Then glue the character to a 3–4 mm thick piece of plywood.
Let it dry for 24 hours, then cut it out using a jigsaw.
Then take a clothes peg and drill a hole with a diameter of 1,5 mm into one side. Drill a second hole close to the top of a pencil or pen. Connect the peg and the pencil using a thin piece of string (1 mm) and tie a knot on both ends of the string. You can omit this step if you don’t need any pencils on your clothes peg magnets.
Use wood glue to fasten a figurine to the drilled half of the clothes-peg, just below the hole. Use a strong adhesive to glue a small super magnet, for example, a Q-05-05-02-G, to the back of the other half of the clothes peg.
