Magnetic Cookie Sheet Toy for Kids

Turn a dollar store cookie sheet into a fun DIY toy that promotes creative play.

I'm always looking for screen-free activities to keep my kids entertained. I was wandering the aisle of Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and saw all of these super fun wooden shapes and thought it would be so cool to make some kind of toy out of them. So I picked up a few packs and came home to brainstorm. I pulled out a cookie sheet from the dollar store and the idea hit. The kids needed magnetic scene boards so they could use the shapes to play!

It was really simple to do. I just hot glued a magnet to the back of each of the shapes.

Then I had my kids draw landscape backgrounds that coordinated with each of the wooden shape sets. We taped the corners of the drawings to the cookie sheet and voila! A simple toy that promotes creative play!

They drew a hillside for the knight and his castle,
