Loved equally by parents and children, magnetic drawing boards allow kids to get creative without making a mess. And because they can be used over and over again, they're also more eco-friendly than paper-based art activities. Magnetic drawing boards come in a variety of sizes. While large boards are ideal for home use, smaller models are more portable and can help keep little hands busy in the car or at a restaurant. Some magnetic drawing boards come with stamps and other accessories. However, if your child is under three years old, it might be necessary to remove smaller items as these can pose a choking hazard. Look for tethered pens and on-board storage for stamps to keep loose pieces from getting lost in the shuffle.
