Make a fun travel size word game, by reusing a metal altoid (or other mint/candy) tin.
Simply cut words from old magazines, and glue them to sheets of thin magnets. Cut the words out and place them inside the tin.
Kids can carry these on car trips, camping trips, use them on bus rides to school, or simply for rainy days.
The words can be used to create sentences, helping the child learn to spell, and create complete sentences.
