My 3-year-old loves to play school. It looks like she is following in the footsteps of her daddy, grandma, aunt and uncle who are all teachers. I created this magnetic wall in her room to give her lots of space to pretend!
I started by painting an area of the wall with magnetic paint. I used the whole can in order to make it strong enough to hold magnets. The directions on the can say a few coats, wrong! It takes A LOT of coats (and smells pretty bad).
Then, I used a primer coat and top coat to match the rest of the wall. I added wood trim to frame the space.
We used magnets on the back of the weather frog, days of the week, and circle time helper chart. The calendar is held up by mighty magnets and velcro.
I'm really happy with the final product. It looks nice in her room and functions well as a “circle time” wall. I can see us using this for lots of other activities as she gets older.
