A DIY Magnetic Activity Board

Mollie D

Mollie and her husband teamed up to create a hanging activity board for their toddler son using materials from the hardware store and toys they already had at home.

It has elements of a busy board (hooks and latches) combined with a large metal sheet for playing with magnets. Most of the magnets are wood puzzle pieces that Mollie attached magnets to.
