Birthday Gift for 1 Year Old: Magnet Exploration Bucket

My friend Tiffany's youngest daughter turned 1 recently 
and I put together a Magnet Exploration Bucket as a gift.

In it, I included these homemade magnets

These were made by simply hot gluing magnets on the back of those cute Hobby Lobby wood pieces.
Her name magnets (in the photo above) were cardboard letters found in the scrapbooking section at Hobby Lobby also.

I also included a magnet wand, a giant paper clip (no pointy ends), a huge jingle bell (definately cannot fit in the mouth) and I also made a mouth friendly book ring loop chain.

I made the book ring loop chain by wrapping rainbow yarn around each metal bookring and hot gluing the ends to secure. This way, if she decides to put it in her mouth, she wont chip a tooth, and the clasps can no longer open because they are all completely wrapped up.

this being the result

Happy Birthday to an adorable little girl!

  1. This is such a wonderful gift idea. And even though my four year old has a TON of magnets, he loves them so much, and this is so cute, I believe I'll be making him some more magnets for Christmas. Thank you so much for sharing! I'm going to pin this.

  2. Avary LOVES her bucket! She plays with her magnet treasures all the time, thanks again Jessie!!!!

  3. I know this is years later ... But could you tell me where you purchased the flat-safe paperclips? Thank you for your time. Anita
