Magnet Play: Apple theme
This was a play invitation I set up one day for Big Sister and Little Guy.
Paper clips, magnets, tissue paper, and the corn bin.
((The Babies were sleeping...tooooo many hazards with this one!))
The Big Kids had fun exploring with the magnets.
We tore the tissue paper into small squares (Tearing paper into little bits works on those small muscles in the hands). Put a couple of paper clips into the tissue paper.
And crumble it up into a ball
We were calling them "apples".
Only requiring a small stretch of the imagination :)
Big Sister and Little Guy went on an Apple Hunt, raking the magnets through the corn to grab up the apples.
It felt pretty neat on the hands to rake through the corn...a great sensory play activity!
We had a hunt for paper clips too...
