Stop And Go Light Magnetic Toy And Wall Art

Turn three pizza pans into an adorable  piece of wall art for any little boy’s room or playroom.  It is as fun and educational as it is cute.  With a few inexpensive things you can create a totally unique toy that doubles as wall art! I have been making magnet boards similar to this for my kids and friend’s kids for about a year.  They are fun and educational.  I was using just a rectangular pan and adding magnetic letters, numbers, and objects.  They spent a lot of time learning to spell words and recognize letters using them.
