These Tetris magnets are easy to make and interlock just like the pieces in the video game.
You could go through the fuss of cutting and sanding all the blocks, or you could pick up these colored wood blocks. They cost $3 for 72 blocks from Hobby Lobby or $1.50 if craft wood is 1/2 off that week! They also have plain wooden cubes if you want to paint them yourself. There are six colors in the pre-colored pack but Tetris has seven different pieces, so I used yellow for the 7th shape and then painted the pieces white after I put them together.
I used hot glue to join the cubes together, then cut strips of magnet and glued them on as well. I bought a roll of self-adhesive magnetic strip for this project but found that the adhesive wasn’t strong enough and the wood would fall off easily.
Voilà! Tetris for your fridge!

The cake is not a lie, and apparently it is indeed delicious and moist.
The cake that inspired the makers of Portal and failed to entice Chell to assume the party escort position is made by Regent Bakery & Cafe in Redmond, WA. If it weren’t 1,763 miles from here (according to Google Maps) we’d have a road trip on our hands. Maybe someday!
