Keep Kids Busy with a Magnet Wand

We love using magnets for a little extra-early science learning.

Get thee to a hardware store and purchase a telescoping magnetic wand. It’s loads of fun. New Kid cannot stop playing with his. All I do is scatter metal washers all over the floor, sit back and relax!

Don’t forget: ALWAYS supervise children when playing with magnets.
