When you were a child, did you have all the important phone numbers memorized?  Even in my sleep, I could rattle off my best friend’s phone number, my mom’s work number, and (of course) my own phone number.  Things have changed with the introduction of cell phones and Bluetooth.  We no longer have to memorize these numbers.  I teach 6th grade and sometimes need to reach parents. Many of my students have no idea what their phone number is.  It’s time-consuming and inconvenient to look up those numbers on a computer database in every situation.  My own children don’t know all the numbers that they could reach in an emergency.  If I don’t answer my phone, they’d be lost!  That’s why I used MyPrintly to make a free magnet that goes right on our refrigerator.  If a babysitter is at our house, this magnet is a quick reference if she needs to get in contact with us.  It’s simple to print off extras to give this to a daycare teacher.  Don’t forget to tuck one in your child’s backpack!   My Emergency Numbers Magnet took just seconds to create.  Here’s how to make yours! 

1.  Head over to MyPrintly and create your photo card.  I used the 4×6 card and cut it down to the size I wanted.  If you don’t want to use a photo, you can select from the many free background templates that are available!  Add text, graphics, and other details to make it yours.   Be sure to save your project so that you can keep it updated when phone numbers change.

2.  Find a magnet that isn’t getting used.  We receive magnets in junk mail and as promotional items from companies.  The one I used was from a 2014 business card calendar.

3.  Use glue or tape to adhere the photo card to the magnet, and you’re finished!  Make several at once to hand out to everyone who needs to know how to reach you.

Here’s a short video to demonstrate this simple craft!

    I love this such a great idea! Right now the only people we let babysit are close family or friends so they would have all our emergency numbers saved in their phones.

  14. Sherry Compton says:

    My grown daughter and her friend still can rattle off their old movie theater number and each other’s old numbers they’ve called them so many times. Very helpful to have a list of important numbers in site for all.

  15. Katherine Riley says:

    Great idea! I keep a small address book in my jewelry cabinet with important family phone numbers in it, just in case.

  16. rochelle haynes says:

    What a good idea

  17. Very good idea. Thanks for the information.

  18. Deborah W. says:

    This is a great idea! I wrote them on a notebook next to the phone but a lot of people don’t have home phones anymore.

  19. I think that this is a very great little reminding item, and I am glad to see that you are helping people out getting situated with it.

  20. desiree says:

  21. Tamra Phelps says:

    It’s a great idea to put Emergency numbers on magnets. There would be no trying to find a paper or book with the numbers, you would just know they are on the fridge!

  27. This is a very nifty and decorative way to enhance perception when you are going to need it– when emergencies arise. Thanks for the creative idea.
