Make cardboard metallic

Say I have a flat-shaped cardboard box. I want to use it for activities for DD. One of those being with magnets. How do I make that box metallic? I wondered about maybe using metal paint, though I know little about it. Any other ideas?



I'm one happy and hopeful, crazy mom and wife to the best DH ever.

Re: Make cardboard metallic

there is such a thing as magnetic paint. It is probably next to the chalkboard paint at Home Depot (LOL). I've never used either.
Our local library just did a whole section in the kids' area half chalkboard and half magnetic.
