Simple Fun Tip

Gather some cookie sheets or metal pizza pans and some magnets. Let your child play with the magnets by sticking them to the metal pans and then peeling them off. We use the free flat magnets with business advertisements, as there are no small pieces that could be swallowed...and, nothing to be broken.

If you don't have those, or you'd just like more fun, try creating your own fun magnets by buying magnet sheets or rolls and using some of the following to make customized magnets -

Glue magnets to the following:

Magazine cut outs
Pictures of family
Small toys (think gumball machine toys)
Stickers
Words that have been printed out
Cut up pieces of sandpaper, fabric, sponges, and other materials with a range of textures

What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this.

I'll make a larger pizza for my son to play with. I think it's better for him not to swallow the whole thing lol. ('cause he once attempted to swallow one magnet he gotten hold of.)
