Make repositionable googly eyes with sticky-backed rubber magnets, or promotional magnets and a drop of glue.
A hole punch works great–it’s the easiest, fastest, best way to get little circles of magnets.
For larger circles, we tried a razor blade circle cutter. It leaves a mark in the center of the cutout, but can cut the edge neatly.
A circle cutter marketed for foam board that we tried works fine for marking the surface of the magnet. The outer plastic circle requires a large area of material to rest on for cutting, but the tool can cut through the magnet with some effort.
You’ll find more pictures in this flickr set. You can put your own googly eye pictures in the Evil Mad Science Auxiliary.
