There are many fun commercial magnet boards for travel. Ones where you can set up furniture in a house, a construction site, farm etc. Why not make your own before you go on a trip and then you will have it for play while you travel! If you have more than one child, you could exchange them with each other and/or save them for future road trips, making a small collection! Materials Pencil Eraser Markers or pencil crayons Thin black pen Self adhesive magnet sheet (you can buy these in craft or dollar stores) Scissors Small cookie sheet Storage bag Directions Think of a theme or idea for your magnet board. Whether is be “Under the Sea”, “Space Travels” etc. You could even just do shapes. Sketch out all your parts, colour them and cut them out. (We sketched, traced over the pencil lines with a thin, black pen and then erased the pencil once the ink was dry. After colouring with pencil crayons, we added a bit of glitter and watercolour to create a magical sea scene.) Mount your cut-out pieces on the sticky part of your magnet sheet and then cut them out again. Put them in a bag with your small cookie sheet and take them with you on your next road trip, creating a scene and enjoying imaginary play on your cookie sheet board. Purpose Creating props for play. Safety Notes Exercise caution when using scissors. Magnets can be dangerous if swallowed– seek immediate medical attention. Thus, this activity is not recommended for children 0-3 or those who tend to put objects in their mouths. Please like & share: 2 Responses Jeanine December 4, 2014 I LOVE this project!
