    Why use a Tin Container?

    Magnets will stick to the lid of the tin. You can make pictures, write messages, play word games and they won't slide around.

    Felt sticks to felt. Glue a square piece of felt to the inside of the tin lid, use felt shapes or tangram shapes to create pictures and scenes.

    Tin provides a solid surface to write on, use a non-permanent marker to play games like knots & crosses on the outer lid - wipe it clean easily.

    The tin lid provides the perfect surface to eat on, wrap a sheet of cling/plastic wrap over the inside of the tin lid - no mess, fold up and discard.

    The inside of the lid with a felt insert also provides a great surface to play games with dice or other pieces on.

    Inside The Tin Lid - Felt Creations

    Felt do stick to felt. Glue a square piece of felt in a neutral color, the size of the lid to the inside of the lid. Cut additional shapes in different colors and sizes to create pictures with or play dice on the inside of the lid. You can also draw fold-up game boards on other felt squares, stick it on and play.
