Magnet Fun

Age: 6-8
Location: Waiting, Travel, Indoor
Set-up: Planned


  • A magnet
  • Paper clips or coins


Take a magnet (a large square magnet works best) and many paper clips, coins, or any other material that is small and will stick to the magnet you chose.


Have your child make chains out of the paper clips, or stacks out of the coin, exploring how they stick to the magnet and the different sculptures that can be created.
