Magnetic Sensory Bin

I prepared a magnetic bin for the kids during the weekend: I used the pasta shapes as a base. Then added a magnetic wand, coloured magnetic marbles,some kitchen utensils (some steel and some plastic),magnetic wooden blocks and plastic caps.Both kids enjoy exploring the magnets and finding out the different materials and experimenting whether they "work" with the wand or not.




Derin loves stringing the marbles using the wand!
