I bought this for my 2 year old daughter to use as a mom-daughter activity. We did the pictures together and then i put it away so she wouldn't lose the pieces. Sometime between the age of 2 and 4 she started playing with it by herself. Even as an adult i enjoyed playing with it, so it was a fun together activity. Great for demonstrating patterning, shapes, art designs.
I couldn't agree more with my kids that Science is so much fun! Now I will admit that sometimes teaching your kids all about the how's and whys of science can seem like a huge daunting task but it doesn't have to be! Why as of recently, I've been teaching my four year old daughter the wonders and ways of magnetism, thanks to a great new science activity set from Learning Resources! First thing to know is that the Primary Science Magnet Set from Learning Resources is geared toward children ages 4-12 years old. The set comes with 10 double sided activity cards, an extremely helpful guide, and lots of other eye catching items (14 total) that have kept my daughter quite engaged in learning and exploring the many different ways magnets work. A few of the activities we tried out where the Amazing Maze, in which the key concept was that magnets can retain their magnetic force through other objects. My daughter took the large yellow magnet in the set on moved it around underneath the leaf maze to move both of the included ladybugs! She totally was intrigued and having a lot of fun. The next activity we did together was the Floating Magnets, in which we used the four round magnets and the long pole. This activity taught my daughter all about how magnets can attract and repel! She was very fascinated by everything that we did and has learned with the set with me during our schooling time and has enjoyed playing with it many times all on her own. My four year old loves to tinker so this set has been a wonderful educational tool in our home giving her the freedom to explore in learning all about polarity, attraction, and repulsion in fun hands on way! I highly recommend The Primary Science Magnet Set for any home or school classroom. The set is colorful, durable, engaging, and encourages kids to be hands on in learning new things!
So far this has been a great product. We use this product several times a day as part of our homeschool, for teeth brushing, reading, chores and so much more. It's easy to set and I love the versatility of the timing options. Not that we would need to set a timer for 1-2 seconds, but if we did it will definitely to that no problem at all.
We bought this set as a present for my son who loves legos and has almost everything Lego imaginable. It wad a hit. Although they are small sets they cover so many characters he thought it was so cool.
