Bottle Top Artwork Magnets

I've been trying to think of fun ways to use up all the bottle tops we've been collecting.  I already shared my bottle top color matching game.  Today I'll show you the tiny artwork magnets we made.  My idea was to give my kids a teeny tiny canvas on which to create the smallest little masterpieces.  They each ended up spending about 2-5 minutes coloring total.  It's funny how projects form in ones mind compared to reality.

Still- I like them.  

After the kids drew in their circles I cut them out and used Mod Podge to adhere them to the inside of the caps, along with a good amount spread on top of the artwork as a finish.  I attached the magnets using the wonder glue E6000 .
 Here we have their magnet art holding up their everyday art:
I'm thinking it would be fun to make sets of these as grandparent gifts.  I also would like to have the kids try other mediums for the art work.  Paint with tiny brushes?  Fine tipped markers?  Pastels?  It would be fun to try different things.
