Life size Lincoln Logs made out of pool noodles~ 15 pool noodles from the dollar store, cut in half, cut notches out easily, with scissors = hours and hours of fun playtime! These were my favorite toy as a kid, love the life size!
*I like that these are kid-driven, not attempts at perfect crafts. Art projects and crafts that are perfect for the tough toddler age. 30 craft and art activities that a toddler will love. How have you gotten creative with your toddler?
They sell these tins at craft stores in the wedding section (use a coupon to get a good deal) attach strong magnets. I got a metal board from Ikea and they just magnet on there. You could also paint a cookie sheet any color you like and use that.
