Did you know that you can buy a quart of magnetic primer, paint a few coats on a small section of a wall, cover it with your regular paint color, and you will have a secret magnetic wall?
I did this in B’s playroom and it’s so fun! I Our wall is textured so it really required quite a few coats and only very strong or large magnets work on it which is a bummer because I wanted the Leapfrog fridge phonics sets to go on there. When B was about 12 months, I bought those wooden animal shapes from Hobby Lobby and made them into magnets. There are so many possibilities! Wouldn’t it be neat on the side of a cupboard or a door if you were going to repaint it anyway?
