Paper Plate Magnet Maze

Teach your kids to make their toys. Paper Plate Magnet Maze is good for starters!
When your kids look for something to do, take their hand and teach them how they can create their own entertainment for example by making Homemade Play Dough or Homemade Bouncy Ball. I remember I used to make my own magnetic toys to play. In the times of my childhood it was very difficult to obtain a magnet but I managed to exchange some of my treasures for four or five of them to make an excellent board game.

That’s why I got very excited when I saw an outstanding Paper Plate Magnet Maze presented by Rubyellen on Cakies. Simple materials used for this game give endless possibilities. The children can use their magnetic toys to organize races or you can also give them a clue and encourage to draw a few mazes with different difficulty levels.

I’m gonna show this simple toy to my son and I hope to find my old board game somewhere in the attic. Did you also create your toys? Tell us about it.
