oil drip pan from Walmart as a giant magnet board ($12). A Mom gave me the things to make this for Christmas -- best Christmas Present ever! It was super easy to do and the children love to play with it. 3 months later it is still holding up to daily use by multiple children! I think I want to make some more with other pictures or whatever on them, easy to store since they nest in each other!
