Magnetic Wall

We have recently moved and are still getting fully situated in the new house.  Part of that includes setting up areas for the kids.  We used to have a magnetic board in the kitchen for magnet play, but this house does not have a place for that.  So today I created a 2’x3′ magnetic wall in each of the kids rooms.
