Giant Magnetic Garage Murals

Hi friends! I just wanted to stop by quickly and share this really easy art activity that got the boys and me out of the house.

We're really trying to keep our spirits uplifted here and one of the ways that we do that (and remain sane during these difficult times) is to go outside. I saw this really neat IG post showing a family decorating their garage door with magnetic toys and it was like a lightning bolt hit me right in the head and heart.

Bright colors? Removable decorations? Process art? Outdoor time? Yes. Yes. Yes. And YES! So I'm sharing this really easy activity with you today.

DIY Magnetic Transportation Map Game

Our epic move still looms overhead.  The movers are coming next week and then we fly off to California a week after that.  I keep trying to explain what's happening to Chuck, but I'm not sure he gets it yet.  So I came up with this easy craft and activity to help him out.  It's a DIY Magnetic Transportation Map Activity where you move different types of transportation across county using magnets!

Chuck really enjoyed helping me to color in the map and different types of transportation using watercolors.  He also REALLY enjoyed moving everything around using magnets.  It was a bit of trial and error to put this toy together, but at the end we came up with a craft that's easy to make, fun to use, and *hopefully* helpful for Chuck.

Let's get making!

DIY Magnetic Fishing Game

Currently, one of Chuck's favorite books is 10 Little Fish by Audrey and Bruce Wood.  It's a cute book about subtraction.  Kids count colorful fish on each page as they leave one by one.  And (my favorite part), it has a fishy romance at the end (What can I say?  I'm a closet romantic... tee heee hee.)  To accompany his love for fish, we recently made this DIY Magnetic Fishing Game
