Magnets are fascinating objects, especially to children. Playing with magnets helps develop their cognitive and fine motor skills, and encourages their inquisitive nature.
All you need for this activity is a magnet and a collection of metal and non-metal items.
Encourage children to touch the items using the magnet to see what happens.
You can give them a little challenge: how many object can they pick up at once using the magnet.
Note: Steer children away from electronic equipment while they are playing with magnets.
