Magnetic Idea

At home or on the go, littles love magnets. You can place the magnets in an inexpensive metal pan, or use a metal box like a lunch box to take along with you, like these cute magnets used by Sisters, What! Of course, don't leave baby alone with anything containing magnets small enough to put in their mouths.
