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 amazon.co.uk)
- 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.
