My younger sister constructed this fun, colorful magnetic board for the boys' birthdays last winter. She decoupages the frame and constructs the magnets. The colors and transportation theme go perfectly with the boys' room. I've been meaning to post a photo FOREVER, and unfortunately, this one doesn't do it justice (hello BACKLIGHTING)...but trust me...it is da BOMB! She has also made superhero themed boards and has ideas for many more.
Can anyone say Etsy? (I've been trying to talk her into opening a shop for awhile!)
