After seeing multiple pins showcasing this idea, I had to give this DIY Magnet Board a try in our home!
Since our playroom is decorated with an industrial transportation theme, I thought this addition would fit perfectly, and it has been great.

I grabbed a large oil drip pan from the automotive department at Wal-Mart.
It was priced right around $10!
Then I went to Lowe’s Hardware and picked out four sturdy screws and four coordinating washers.
While this magnetic board could be oriented any way you prefer, hubby and I attached the galvanized pan horizontally to one of our playroom walls – making sure it was at a height that could grow with our kids.
We have used our magnet board for all kinds of things:
Older kids can practice their spelling and vocabulary words!
You could do a farm/zoo animal sort!
These are the Alex Rub-a-Dub Transportation Bath Stick ‘Ems with magnets attached to the back!
We’ve also enjoyed coming across fun seasonal magnets and swapping them out throughout the year.
Over the years, we’ve found a variety of different ones at Dollar Tree.
Whether your children are preschool age or you are working with older learners, the options are endless.
The sky’s the limit, and I’m even considering adding one of these magnet boards to our homeschool room as well!
Don’t have the wall space for a board this size but have some fun magnets you want to use for activities with your kids?
A simple cookie sheet will do!
You can use a baking sheet from your kitchen
to use for the activities you have in mind for your kids.
If you’re like me and you can’t get enough of the galvanized metal look, check out this container idea I found that has been the perfect answer to our crayon storage issues!
Curious about how we’ve done preschool at home over the years? We would love to share a peek inside with you!
