DIY // Magnetic Play Board

Now that we’ve entered toddler-hood, I’m thinking about play differently than I did when she was a baby.  When she was small, I would often put her on a blanket with a variety of toys to encourage her to crawl around and explore.  It was also interesting at the age to see what she was gravitating towards.  Now that she’s older, I’m trying to get better at playing in more compartmentalized ways.  She has accumulated so many toys in her 16 months of life that it’s a little overwhelming and I’m trying to …
