We are getting rid of our TV. Yes, it will be gone, finito. We are finally having some beautiful weather and all my 2 year old wants to do is watch cartoons. Well no more. So I have been trying to come up with some fun things for him to do to keep himself entertained and this week I came up with these...
And I am in love! They were so fun to make and Mr. Finn absolutely adores them (A+ for mom!). And they were super easy.
Dry erase board
2 Metal Clasp Rings
Face Print out
I started out with a magnetic dry erase board from Walmart. These measure 11X11".
I used a ruler and found the middle of the board and used a dry erase marker to draw the shape of the face and then traced over the dry erase marker with a sharpie.
Next step was to drill 2 holes in the top (mark where to drill using the holes on the pencil bag)
And then I used E600 to glue a cute bulldog clamp right in the center of the top.
And use the metal rings to attach the bag to the dry erase board.
Next thing I did was freehand some face parts (eyes, nose, mouth, ect.). I also made a second board that was for animals. I laminated all of the drawings and then cut them out.
Then I placed all of the pieces onto the magnet sheets and cut them out.
All of the pieces are easy to store in the pencil bag, and I also put some colored pencils in each bag so that we can attach some paper to the clip and they can have a cool little coloring board. These keep my boy entertained for quite a while, and trust me, that is saying something.
If you don't want to freehand the magnets yourself you are more than welcome to download the ones that I drew. Keep in mind these were all done with pencil and markers so they are by no means professional, but I think that it adds to the charm!
