We’ve used some fun magnet science kits in the past, but the way my son likes to play with magnets best is through building toys. We have three different kinds… Magna-Tiles, Magformers, and Geomag. I credit my son’s strong understanding of geometric shapes to playing with these magnetic toys.
Geomag building kits come with magnetic rods and steel balls that can be combined to build anything from simple 3D geometric shapes to amazing buildings. I’m always fascinated with what my son comes up with. We’ve had a basic set for over a year now, but just recently added a new dimension… a set with plastic panels.
Super fun for my little engineer!
