Magnetic Letters

Santa brought a bunch of fridge magnet letters which my daughter showed very little interest in after the first session of sticking them to the fridge.  Once she did that, my toddler of course immediately plucked them off and I kept finding them all over the house.  One day when cleaning I had a brainwave which helped to keep the preschooler occupied while I got on with my tidying.  I tried to explain how magnets work and encouraged her to find metallic things around the house.  It worked in that it kept her entertained for a while but we’ll need another couple of sessions I think before she really gets the concept!
