What you need:
* "Star Wars" action figures

* Round magnets

* Strong Epoxy glue


How to make "Star Wars" action figure magnets:
1. Pick out a "Star Wars" action figure from your collection that would make a great magnet. Keep in mind that the bigger the action figure, the larger the magnet you'll need.

2. Glue a round magnet to the back of your action figure. Let dry.

3. Put a coat of clear nail polish on the magnet so it won't leave marks on your refrigerator. Let dry.

4. Place magnet on your refrigerator. Make more action figure magnets and pretend they're fighting over your grocery list in the name of the Empire. You can also add multiple magnets to "Star Wars" toy vehicles to reenact your favorite scenes on the fridge.
