I have taken coffee cans and have made magnetic boards out of them. I recover the can and then I have colored different shapes on it. I then made separate matching shapes to match on can. I used manila folders which work great. I took clear contact paper and covered them and then I placed a magnet on the back. I just used the magnetic stripping. I also recovered the whole can with clear contact paper. Cans make great storage and it’s a great matching game for children.
