Look what I did:
I made a magnet board. I saw the idea on Pinterest ~ Nick & Kate ~ about making a magnet board from an oil drip pan. Awesome idea. I found the pan, and used contact paper to cover the logo with an Eric Carle sun to match the Hungry Caterpillar theme we have in the play room and hung it with the 3M Command Strips.
The girls were so excited. Both of them! The first letter that was put on the newly mounted magnet board was the letter T – for Teagan! Teagan found it and carried it over herself.
Teagan had a great time running (NO! Walk!) from the kitchen to the playroom getting all the magnets from the fridge. We don’t really let them in the kitchen, so they really can’t play with the alphabet letters.
Ashlin crawled over to check it out.
Teagan wasn’t sure if Ashlin should play with it, it was her toy after all. I explained that it was for both of them, so they could both play with the letters. That seemed to help her want to share. Asking Teagan to find the A for Ashlin helped too.
