magnets are dino-mite!

i'm over on the newton's nook designs blog today! 
and today i'm sharing a cute project i made for my little menn!

we take lots of road trips - mostly to see my parents in FL and the boys do great! but sometimes they get a little car crazy! (and so do i!!) so i thought i would make something for them to play with while we were in the car!
and i thought the stamp set for this would be prehistoric pals!

it's a magnet/dry erase board!! and aren't those little dino's cute? :) and since it's also a dry erase board, the boys can color, draw and outline whatever else needs to be added to this scene!

i had to add googly eyes again since they were magnets and the boys would be handling them! :)

i fussy cut out all of the dinosaurs and then added a little bit of extra color to them for some fun! once that was done, i just used an old magnet i had, cut it to size and attached it to the pieces. :) 

here's a teeeeeny tiny video showing this in action (no sound!):

the clouds are just a punch, as is the grass! :)
so that's it! lots of (portable!!) fun for my little menn! :)

here's my biggest little mann playing it below - i had JUST finished it and he had to check it out! :)



  1. Adorable!! What a cute idea :)

  2. Oh my gosh! Not only is this just about the cutest thing, but it's so original. Felt scenes are fun, but I love that they can doodle and add more to this scene :)

    Best crafty wishes!
