Bottle Cap Fridge Mosaic

A friend from my husband's work who drinks a lot of bottled drinks began saving bottle caps for me a few months ago because I like to use them to make matching games for the kids. Well, the kids have pretty well mastered simple matching games, and now I am left with a ton of bottle caps. Lucky me, I stumbled across a mom blogger who had turned her old bottle caps into a fridge mosaic. Sadly, I cannot remember where I saw this, so if it's you, then please do let me know so I can give credit where credit is due!

This is SO easy to make. I just stuck a small piece of sticky back magetic tape to the back of each cap and that's IT! The kids have really enjoyed this. They split the magnets off between them and make different shapes or long lines of caps on the fridge. Miss O is fond of separating them by color, while Little Bean likes to make "Mickey heads" out of three bottle caps. Who knew something so simple would be so entertaining to them?!?

I have no idea who came up with that, but I was just thinking it would be really cute to cut out photos and put them into each of those bottle caps like little bottle cap frames.
