If mom and dad enjoy a bottle of beer from time to time, then the kids are all set for a crafty project to turn those bottle caps into refrigerator art. Gather your caps and get some tacky glue, small magnets, decorative paper, sequins and beads, and clear sealant. Using a quarter as a guide, cut out small round background paper pieces with a utility knife. Glue that to the inside of the cap, and then decorate the rest with the beads, sequins and whatever tiny decorations suit your fancy. Glue each of the pieces to the paper, and then brush the interior with a clear sealant. Once it all dries, glue the magnet to the back and place on the nearest fridge.
