Stainless Steel Refrigerators that don’t like Magnets!

posted by: Kia

We came across the issue of Stainless Steel Refrigerators not liking magnets when we were creating our product and as such we have done some research into options for those of you with this type of appliance. Here are the possible solutions we have found:

* We just heard of this creative way to display your Today I Ate A Rainbow chart!  Use a baking sheet!!!!  Pretty much every kitchen has at least one so you don’t even have to go to the store to buy a display!

1. A product out of the USA called Choopa Board It’s a metal board that comes in a couple of different sizes with suction cups on the back that you place onto the fridge door.

2. You can buy magnetic paint and create a magnetic area out of a convenient cupboard door or an easily accessible wall if you have space.

3. Ikea has a couple of magnetic wall hangings ranging from $9.99 up! We bought a round one and it looks great on the wall and fits all the Today I Are A Rainbow pieces!

4. Office Depot has a few options for magnetic boards, the brand is called Foray.

5. Staples has a couple of magnetic boards as well, based on their website they have some starting at about $10!

6. Many ‘stainless steel’ refrigerators are made differently on the front than they are on the sides. So try the side of it ‘” if your kitchen arrangement allows easy access to it for your children!

We hope this information is useful to those of you with stainless steel appliances! If anyone has any other suggestions please comment below!

Happy Healthy Eating!

    You can also try the front of your dishwasher. Mine is SS but, for reasons I do not understand, things stick to it, but not to the fridge.

    You could always use a cookie sheet and hang it on the wall. After getting this chart you won’t be needing it for cookies anymore ;)

My daughter, who is 3, was very excited about the rainbow chart and magnets. We also both loved the rhyming book. I wasn't sure if she grasped the concept, but after the first day, she said "Mommy, I ...Read More - Tara ~ Mom of 3 yr old-
