A DIY Magnetic Geometric Shapes Activity for Kids

As I was preparing everything for an upcoming holiday I started to take out some of our busy bags that we might need. It was then I decided that, although we have nice collection of busy bags, it was time to add something new to the set. I had bought a couple of magnetic sheets back in September, and now seemed like a perfect time to turn them into a magnetic geometric busy bag.

Make sure you follow my busy bag board on Pinterest for more ideas.  Don’t forget to save the pin for later. 

You will need:

  • Sticky back magnetic sheets (available on
  • Paper
  • Ruler
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • A metal case like an old pencil case

Stick the paper to the magnetic sheets. If you are using a sheet that has an adhesive side you wont be able to remove the paper once it has been stuck down, so make sure it goes on right the first time. I did strips of different coloured paper so that I could get a wider selection of coloured pieces at the end.

Draw your shapes onto the paper and then cut them all out.

I am so glad that I made this one when I did as it proved to be such a hit with both charges. If you don’t want to make it into a magnetic geometric busy bag, then the using them on the fridge would be a great way to keep little ones entertained when you need to cook.

Heelys Rolls Into Spring With New Collection

Heelys, the original two-in-one wheely shoe launched in 2000, is preparing for the upcoming Easter holidays with its new spring collection. Ideal for encouraging an active, healthy lifestyle, the stylish designs will ensure kids (big and small) will roll through the holidays with ease.

The collection consists of 19 designs, including three brand new Heelys shapes: Reserve Ex, Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood. The Reserve Ex has a basketball shoe style, while the Reserve Low and Pro 20 Half Flood tap into the current Y2K trend for an extra chunky sole.

Match your Heelys to your mood, with designs split across two main aesthetics – a darker colour scheme vs. a lighter, spring-inspired palette. Think camouflage print, graffiti text and paint drips contrasting with pastel colours, tie-dye, metallic laces, foil and rainbow print.

Available in the UK and Europe on the Heelys website and retailers, the collection is available in sizes C12-7 across single or two-wheeled styles. RRPs range from £49.99 to £69.99.
