Wooden tangram set from a neighbourhood party shop, adhesive magnetic sheet from Daiso.
Printable robot magnets from Picklebums (http://picklebums.com/build-your-own-robot/)
These were printed on magnetic paper that can be purchased at Daiso. Also covered it with contact paper before cutting them out to protect it somewhat
These different pieces were done up really quickly on PowerPoint using some background images found online and the basic shapes on PowerPoint to create walls, doors, windows, fences etc. I then printed them on magnetic printable paper (from Daiso) and then covered them with contact paper.
You can even get your kids to draw them, then cut them out and paste them onto magnets. Or print out their favourite characters onto magnetic paper for a 2D role play.
The sky is the limit really with these little activity kits and more things get added when we get small toys that come with party packs. Each activity is individually bagged and all are kept in a drawer marked 'Travel', along with the travel kits, so it's easy to just grab and go each time and keep things fresh for the kids :)
Next on the list of activities to do - tic tac toe as Joash is asking me for that. Will probably also add adhesive whiteboard paper to the trays so they double up as a drawing surface!
