Magnet Play

Magnet Play

Location: indoor or outdoor

Materials: a cookie sheet and magnets

With so many refrigerators made of stainless steel, you might not have a place to play with magnets. Instead, try using a cookie sheet. This is especially great for toddlers who may not be great at sharing space and materials yet. A cookie sheet allows each child to have their own magnetic space to work with.
