Today we discovered the wonderful world of magnets. Of course my daughter has encountered magnets before on the refrigerator, but we focused on them today. We have a little magnet stick, and we tried out different things - blocks, our tummies, scissors, etc. - to see what would stick and what wouldn't. "That's a magnet!" we would say when we found something that stuck, and "That's not a magnet!" when it didn't stick. We made up a little song about magnets, which she loved. We saw that some magnets stick with other magnets, some repel each other, some are strong and some are weak, etc. She had a lot of fun just playing by herself with the magnets after awhile, too.
