Cookie-Sheet Travel Activity: Magnetic Sandpaper and Yarn

Magnetic Yarn Sandpaper Travel Activity 300x450 Cookie Sheet Travel Activity:  Magnetic Sandpaper and Yarn

Over the next week or so, I’ll be sharing some simple activities for road trips using a cookie sheet!  Believe it or not, a cookie sheet is a great asset to traveling with children…it can sit in a child’s lap and it creates an instant work/play space!

I have wanted to try the sandpaper and yarn busy bag idea for a while now, but thought it would also make an excellent travel activity if it was magnetic!

Here’s what you’ll need:  a cookie sheet, sandpaper (I used 9-inch), magnetic adhesive roll (which we got from CraftProjectIdeas.com), scissors, a ruler, and yarn.   Optional:  A Zipper pouch to hold the yarn.

1.  Cut the magnetic adhesive roll the same size as the sandpaper.

 I used red, blue, yellow, green and white yarn.  I cut 3 pieces of each color in the following sizes:  12-inches, 6-inches, and 3-inches.

 Keep the yarn pieces in a zippered pouch or sealable plastic bag.
