So we had a bit of a row. Anyway, where am I going with this… oh yes, I thought I’d have a go at making my own version of these animal magnets. And they worked! AND he likes them. And they are the easiest thing to make, my three year old could do it (assuming she could operate a glue gun and spray paint. Details).
