Down on the Farm Magnetic Play Set

Hello everyone, I hope you have had a nice day! It has been very hot here! On top of that, my back has hurt all day soooo, I spent the most part of the day on a heating pad, thank goodness for air conditioning!
   I want to share the adorable play set that I made for my grand-daughter. Her 3rd birthday is coming up next month so I have been busy making things for her. This play set matches the cute down on the farm box birthday card I made for her. 
Here is the play sheet and box. I saw this on one of Doodlebug Designs post and I just absolutely new I had to make it for Ruby! I can't remember the designer but, thank you for telling how you made it!  
The play sheet is made from a cookie sheet. I decorated it with cardstock that I cut out for the landscape.
I decided to make my own box and I love how it turned out! The Doodlebug designer purchased a plastic box and decorated it.
Here is a photo of the attached lid. I glued it and then added brads.
There is a Velcro closure and gingham ribbon handle. I wanted the inside to be bright and cheerful.
There are sooooo many cute play pieces! House, barn, stable, sun, clouds, chicken coop, truck, tractor, lots of farm animals, flowers, seed packets, fence, trees, even a little worm.
Here are some of the pieces on the play sheet.
Here are some more of the cute pieces. There are just too many pieces to show all of them! I purchased the Doodlebug cut outs, laminated them and added magnetic tape to the backs of every piece.
Here is the play sheet, box of farm pieces and the box card I made for Ruby. I love the adorable set and I'm sure it will keep her busy creating different scenes for a while!  I would love to do more these for her. The possibilities are endless! Christmas, Halloween, Beach, Princess etc.,.  I am also working on a dress and a cute outfit for Ruby as well and will post them when I finish them.
I hope you enjoyed seeing the magnetic play set!   Thank you for stopping by and have a good evening!

Hugs Pam

  2. I think blogger lost my comment. Ugh! Such an adorable set and I am in awe and loving the bright box you made for the set. This is so cute and Ruby will have such fun playing with all these pieces to create scenes and stories. Really an amazing idea. I'll have to remember it for the twins when they get older. Everything is still going in the mouth right now. But they are getting better. Trying to catch up with commenting this weekend. Monday starts Girl Scout day camp and I am doing edible rocks, so I have to get that together tomorrow. Hope you have a wonderful weekend. Thanks for sharing this wonderful project!

  7. What a lovely, beautiful labor of love in this amazing gift. You have such intricate details on each item in the playset. The colors are just what a 3 yr old (or even older!) child will love and enjoy. Ruby will have so many hours of play with this one-of-a kind playset made by her loving Grandmother. It's not something that her parents could just go and purchase, and definitely not the hours of love that you put into the fabulous imaginative creation! Well done! TFS & Hugs. It's been real hot in our area too. Just a smidge of a rain drizzle late this afternoon, after promising stormy skies. Some areas got a downpour, and we're grateful to get any rain. Have a cool weekend, hope the back is better too.

  8. All I can say is Ruby is one lucky little girl to have you as here grandma. Your creativity truly shines here. What a creative concept. She is going to have hours of fun playing with this and what a great keepsake. CUTE, CUTE, CUTE!
