Have you jumped on the Magna-Tile train yet? We absolutely love them!
What are Magna-Tiles? Colorful, tactile magnetic geometric shapes. They provide hours of building fun — whether or not your child is creating flat designs on three-dimensional sculptures. We own a set of the translucent blocks, thanks to the funtabulous team at aMuse Toys, who recommended them to us! You can guide your child through play with Magna-Tiles, or hand ’em over and let ’em at them. Watch your kiddo’s imagination soar. The best part? They’re learning as they play. Playing with Magna-tiles develops patterning, shape recognition, building and motor skills. All those foundational math concept skills that will eventually help them with 9th grade geometry. For real. Want to take the play to a whole new — er, plane? Add a mirror tile. Or four. I originally saw this idea on my friend Miranda’s blog and couldn’t wait to try it with the Bug! Think she had fun? You can purchase Magna-Tiles from our friends at aMuse here.
