Magnetic Kid's Games

Camping often requires long car rides that can make any kid squirm, scream, or become too antsy to handle. While some families have iPads or tablets that will keep kids entertained, others don't own one, don't want to deal with the fight to share, or don't yet trust the little ones to keep it safe. One way to keep kids entertained in the car or at the campsite is to create a magnetic game set. It only costs about $5 and will keep them entertained and out of your hair for hours!

You'll need:
A large metal platter
several small magnets
contruction paper

Directions: Cut several pieces of contruction paper to fit the metal platter and attach different games to each one. Some ideas for games would be Road Bingo, Tick Tac Toe, Chess, matching games, or any other fun things you can come up with. Place a game on the platter and let the little ones have some fun. When they are done with that game, they can switch it out for another!

Happy Camping!
