Create an easy felt board and magnet board out of an old biscuit tin. If you have a small tin, it would make a good travel game for a long journey. You can store the magnets and felt shapes inside the tin.

Magnets

Pick a tin with a smooth lid


Method
Draw around the lid on the felt and cut out slightly smaller. The felt can be stretched slightly when it is glued on so don't worry about cutting slightly small.
Glue the felt piece onto the inside of the biscuit tin lid.

Cut out felt shapes from different colours of felt. You could try random shapes, people and clothes, buildings, letters etc.

We also glued some sequins to the top of some shapes



The felt shapes will cling slightly to the felt board. You can arrange pictures and designs on top of the board then rearrange them to make new pictures.



Draw around the lid onto the coloured paper. Cut out and glue on to the top of the lid.



You can now arrange magnets on top of the board. We had some novelty hand shapes but letters etc would be fun for kids who are learning to read.
