My son is a big collector of little trinkets... or so it seems to me!  Whether it's a happy meal toy or a little favor from a friend's birthday party, these things seem to end up on his shelves, in his toy box and on top of his dresser.  A couple of years ago, I gathered up some of his tiny trinkets and a few other things and made my son a bulletin board for his bedroom.   He loved it!

Just a little hot glue...and there you have it!

Recently my son got a dry erase board for above his desk...which is so nice for practicing spelling words and for leaving him notes.
So of course, I had to make him a few magnets!

I love magnetic strips!!
I got this bag at Walmart for
$1.17 and can probably make
50 magnets with it!

You can turn pretty much anything into a magnet!
I printed a couple of pictures off the computer and lamenated them.  The "B" I got in a clearance bin at A.C.  Moore for 25's my favorite!

Kerri you are a genius! I especially love the idea of using trinkets around a bulletin board. My boys each have 2 'special' drawers. It's a place where they keep their little trinkets they can't part with. But, they rarely actually use them or play with them. I think I'll show them this idea & have a project day where I help each of them make one. Thanks for the idea!

What a great idea! I'm sure every house has trinkets hanging around with nothing to do!

Thanks for linking up with What are little boys made of?
