Magnet Play

Toddlers love playing with magnets, but these items aren’t just toys. Little ones learn all kinds of principles, or are at least exposed to their fundamentals, when placing the magic manipulatives on metal surfaces. A child can begin to recognize numbers if you use numeral magnets. Get a set of themed magnets, such as foods or trucks and cars.
